FINE AND RARE GERMAN HAND AND A HALF SWORD C.1620. This magnificent sword was surely made to order for a wealthy and probably titled owner. It is a hand and a half broadsword made for use in one hand or two, depending on the situation. It is related to a group of swords dating to the early 17th century, mainly decorated with animal head pommels and quillon terminals. The use of human heads is less well known, but several examples exist. A notable example, evidently related to and possible by the same artisan is in the collection of the Historsche Museum, Dresden, #VI/341. Features distinctive to both examples are the form of the ears and the wedge shaped rolled collar. The base of the 32 3/4" double edged blade is decorated with a scrolling tendril from which three flowers bloom, growing from a fruit. The reference is obviously to the cycle of birth and renewal a popular theme offering hope in troubled times.

Magnificent Jeweled Medici Dagger, ca. 1840. This one-of-a-kind ceremonial dagger is perhaps the most unique and exceptional piece we have ever offered. Constructed entirely of fine silver with a pierced filigree hilt of exceptional quality and detail. The obverse is studded with 4 large emeralds (approx. 17.6 total carats), 133 smaller diamonds, ranging in size from approx. 1.5mm to 3.5mm (120 original rose-cut and 13 later full-cut), and mounted with a 7.5mm pearl on the pommel. The central feature is a gold Medici Family crest, surmounted by a band of diamonds with gold border and crowned with a diamond-studded fleur de lis. The reverse is gilded and mounted with 5 cabochon-cut turquoise, 3.5mm to 5mm in diameter. One stone appears to be absent, but close examination of the setting shows it to be different than those holding the turquoise, indicating it was possibly a different gem. The solid silver 6 3/8″ blade features acanthus decoration at the forte and an inscribed name (Enrico?). Overall length 11 3/8″, weight 176.5 grams. Included is a certified gem assessment by an accredited gemological lab, though nobody has been able to offer an actual appraisal given the rarity and importance of this unique piece. Everywhere I have taken this piece I have watched jaws drop with amazement when people see it. It is an amazing piece which photos cannot begin to do justice to. The Medici’s were one of Europe’s wealthiest and most influential families from the 14th to the 18th Century. They were instrumental in igniting the Renaissance throughout Europe. Four popes were from the family. While the family had declined politically by the first half of the 18th century, this dagger is proof that their wealth and prestige continued far into the next century.

Fine North European Two Handed Sword Dating To Circa 1520. A fine, rare and well proportioned North European two handed  sword (hand and a half sword).  The hilt, which retains much of its original blackening to the iron parts, is an impressively chiselled example of the early 16th century armourer’s craft. The flat, downwardly curved quillons,  widening towards square-ended terminals, with central rope-twist decoration in raised relief on both sides, plus the deeply grooved pommel with fluted ridges, mark this sword out as a member of a distinct and unique group of North European two-handed swords. So far as we know, only six of this type are presently identified. The broad blade is single edged with a thick spine beneath which two fullers each side extend from the hilt for 40% of its length, after which the blade is double edged and of lenticular section. Three crescent-shaped notches are applied at the end of the spine. An armourers mark of facing crescents terminating in ovals, with a further oval imbetween,  flanked by trefoils of diamond shaped dots is present on one side a short distance from the hilt. The marks are most likely of a Passau smith. The hub of the cross is formed as a thick bar of rectangular section. The distinctive quillons are rounded nearest the block and expand in vertically flattened form towards their terminals and are decorated with raised diagonally grooved rope-like lines along the middles which are flanked by further incised lines. Two horizontal ring guard bars of thick round section are applied to the sides, each formed with two raised knops with similar “roped” finish. Beneath the cross, a downward facing round section bar of open crescent shape is applied. Two further crescents, also decorated with knops, are forged onto the terminals of this bar and rise at 45 degrees to attach to, and strengthen, the side rings. The pommel is of upturned pear shape and formed with eight equally spaced deep grooves which radiate from the pommel top to its base. The surfaces of the ridges imbetween are cut with narrow lines alternating in vertical, and diagonally vertical form, similar in depth and spacing as the lines which form the rope designs on the guard. The guard and the pommel retain much of the original  blackened finish. The waisted stepped grip is of wood covered with leather over a cord wrap. The blade length is 41.5 inches (105.5 cm) and overall is 52 inches (132 cm) long. These large swords were not just for two-handed use. They were designed to be used equally well with one hand by a trained user. In the 16th century such  swords were quite common on European battlefields, carried by  armies fighting wars almost permanently during a time of shifting religious  and political change. As fashions moved towards the beginning of the 17th century they went out of use and today are rare compared to the survival rates of two-handed swords of the “bearing sword” variety – large, well made, imposing and decorous, but designed mainly to be carried point up in civic procession rather than for use in combat. One fine example, almost identical to ours, is illustrated in “Records of the Medieval Sword”, Ewart Oakeshott, St Edmundsbury Press, 1991, page 241, which sold through Peter Dale Ltd of London before 1982. The same example is illustrated in “The Price Guide to Antique Edged Weapons”, Leslie Southwick, Antique Collectors Club, 1982, page 29, fig 49). Oakeshott comments that another sword in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London (Inventory Number M.602-1927) and illustrated in “European Swords”, Anthony North, page 6 fig 3, has an identical hilt apart from the guard having one branch. A third example is illustrated in “Edged Weapons in Sweden”, Staffan Kinman, Stockholm, 2014, page 29, fig 26b, and is similar to the British Museum example. Oakeshott comments on another in Zurich (Schweizerisches Landesmuseum Inventory Number LM 16933). A fifth sword with similar characteristics is also illustrated in Southwick (as above) fig 48, its location unknown.

RARE SPANISH OR ITALIAN WHEEL POMMEL RAPIER C.1530. No single form or date can be given to the point at which the rapier evolved. However, accepting the common definition, this example comes very close to that point, retaining the principal attributes of the Gothic broadsword, straight cross guard and wheel pommel. Its simple counter guard is identical to one on an example in the Sir James Mann collection dated to the 1520s. Other examples with variations of the guard are dated earlier, however, they all evidently have cutting/thrusting blades. The heavy diamond section blade of this example marked VALENCIA (sic.) distinguishes it as among the very earliest swords made primarily for thrusting with in respect to then evolving sword technique. 35 3/4" length blade. Allowing for the commerce in weapons, the universal popularity of imported weapons and the blade inscription, it is reasonable to conclude that it was produced for the Spanish market and as such might be linked to the conquistadors. Of the few related examples, it appears that several are in excavated condition and nearly all in public collections.

Rare Medieval Type XVII Broadsword, ca. 1400, Not Excavated!. This is what is generally known as a Type XVII sword, based on the typology of author and expert R. Ewart Oakeshott. This type sword was prevalent from roughly 1350 to 1425, which would place it in use during the Hundred Years War between England and France. It features an acutely tapering 29″ blade of flattened hexagonal section with broad central full-length fuller, with a pair of star-shaped maker’s marks stamped on each side. The crossguard is a simple one-piece straight bar of rectangular section tapering toward the ends. Crossguard is the type classified by Oakeshott as 1a, a type most commonly found on the Type XVII swords. The pommel is a faceted “scent stopper” shape as classified by Oakeshott as Type T, one of the more prevalent pommel styles found on Type XVII swords which first appeared in the late 14th C. Grip is wood with leather wrap. The wrap appears old and has some small losses, but it is not dry and flaking as one might expect if it were the original. Also, such leather wraps, if original to a sword of this age, generally are worn very thin and often become almost integral with the wood beneath. Overall length is 36 1/4″, which is smaller than most Type XVII swords, but still very typical of swords of that period. It is very well balanced and can easily be handled with either one or two-handed grip. Though simple in design, it just feels right. Exhibits genuine age, the blade showing lamination and all metal surfaces with scattered light to moderate pitting and an even age patina. These early swords are almost impossible to find when not excavated

German / Tyrolean Hand And A Half Sword Circa 1520 With Islamic / Ottoman Inscription. A German or Tyrolean “hand and a half” size fighting sword, of attractive proportions, dating to the first part of the 16th century. A worn Islamic inscription on both sides of the blade indicates that the sword was once captured by the Ottomans as a trophy, most likely in one of the many battles engaged between European and Ottoman forces, as the Empire expanded into the Balkans, Southern Europe and the Mediterranean rim in the late 15th and  16th centuries. Until the early part of the 20th century many similar trophies were stored at the Istanbul Armoury (now the Military Museum, Asker Muzesi, at Harbiye), and relocated to other locations around the city in turbulent times for Turkey at the end of the Ottoman era, often to insecure and inappropriate storage. Some swords like this dispersed to European collections where they were cleaned and displayed. The story of the sword therefore not only represents the European armourer’s craft in the early 16th century, but also in different ways, the rise of the Ottoman Empire, which it was originally used to oppose, and its decline. The broad double-edged blade gradually tapers towards its point. A central  fuller extends from the hilt either side for 10 inches (26 cm) which is flanked by two shorter fullers 7 inches (18 cm) in length. Just after the fullers terminate the inscription is applied slightly to one side on each face and the blade is of flattened lenticular section thereafter for the rest of its length. The middle of the cross is forged as a thick, oval guard bar. The quillons are of rounded section and curve downwards to terminate in large waisted swollen knops. A sloping thumb ring is present on one side and a more imposing guard ring is fixed to the other, strengthened by secondary guard bars which join the sides of the ring with the cross bar. The outer edge of the ring is decorated with knops of similar style to the quillon terminals. The solid pommel is dome shaped on top, decorated with fern-like incised designs, cone shaped below and mounted with an integral button. The waisted stepped grip is of wood covered with leather over a cord wrap. These large swords were not just for two-handed use. They were designed to be used equally well with one hand by a trained user. In the 16th century “hand and a half” swords were probably not a rare site on European battlefields. As fashions changed towards the beginning of the 17th century they went out of use and today are quite rare compared to the survival rates of two-handed swords which are of the “bearing sword” variety – large, well made, imposing and decorous, but designed mainly to be carried point up in civic procession rather than for use in combat. Blade length 41.25 inches (105 cm). Length overall 49.5 inches (126 cm).

South German Or Swiss Hand And A Half Sword Circa 1560. A scarce and attractive “hand and a half” sword dating to the mid 16th century. A well made example, finely balanced in hand, well constructed and in good  condition. The distinctive hilt is similar to contemporary hilts of more common single handed swords known as “Saxon”, but most certainly made and used over a much wider region. Similar contemporary hand and a half examples of the same proportions are on display in the Doge’s Palace in Venice. Photographs of these swords in the Palace are enclosed at the end of the sequence of images of our sword posted below. These large swords were not just for two-handed use. They were designed to be used equally well with one hand by a trained user. In the 16th century these swords were probably not a rare site on European battlefields, carried by mercenaries and professional soldiers in armies fighting almost permanently during a time of shifting religious, political and social change. As fashions changed towards the beginning of the 17th century they went out of use and today are quite rare compared to the survival rates of two-handed swords which are of the “bearing sword” variety – large, well made, imposing and decorous, but designed mainly to be carried point up in civic procession rather than for use in combat. The hilt consists of a robust square section quillon block from which the broad arms of the cross guard are forged in flattened diamond section broadening towards the ends and terminating in shallow diamond profiles mounted with knops in the centre. A ring guard is forged from the block, and a smaller secondary ring guard sits beneath this attached to the base of two vertically aligned convex crescents of iron, which extend from the underside of the block either side of the ricasso. This structure is further strengthened on the reverse side by two crossed loops of rounded form which protrude from the block and attach to the base of the guard crescents below. A thumb ring is attached to the block above these loops. The pommel is of solid cone form with a slightly flared and narrow neck beneath. The waisted stepped grip is of wood covered with leather over a cord wrap. The broad blade is double edged with a ricasso extending some 5.5 inches (14 cm) from the hilt. A single broad central fuller extends down the centre of the blade 9.5 inches (24 cm) flanked by two shorter fullers of similar width which extend for the length of the ricasso. Beyond the central fuller the blade is of flattened lenticular section to its tip. Just beyond the end of the central fuller a stamped armourers mark is present both sides consisting of a face in a half moon facing to the left. This type of mark was often used by Solingen and Toledo trained smiths.  This mark particularly resembles the Toledo mark of Espadero del Rey. The blade is most likely of Northern Italian origin manufactured by a Toledo trained smith, working in an area under Spanish control, possibly Milan, from where Spanish blades could easily access the wider European sword making markets. It is also possible that the mark is of a Spanish trained smith that went on to work in one of the non-Spanish blade-making centres such as Solingen and that the sword was made in its entirety there. This sword form was not common in the Spanish armoury. Some European sword makers are known to have trained in Toledo, for example Heinrich Col who was a German from Solingen who worked in Toledo then in Germany (Cf. Seitz I, p. 344, and II, p. 268) indicating that movement of smiths between blade and sword making centres occurred. For more information on this mark see “European Makers of Edged Weapons, Their Marks – A Handbook for Museums and Collectors”, Staffan Kinman, Norrkopings Tryckeri, 2015. Blade length 39 inches (99 cm). Length overall 47.5 inches (120.5 cm).

You are bidding on a wonderfully crafted  high quality copy of a Georgian horse head cavalry sabre.  All the castings are crisp and well finished and the scabbard is all brass.  It fits the sword with precision and when the sword is held point up in the scabbard, it does not fall out.  But yet, there is just a gentle pull to remove it.  In short it closes like a Swiss watch.  The blade of the sword is well done with acid etched relief abating circles.  Sword in scabbard overall measures 36" with the hilt being 4 3/4" and the blade width is 1 1/2" and the thickness of the blade where it meets the hilt is 5/16".  A excellent reproduction that I have had and used for years that I am sure you will be pleased with as well. Ebay URL:https://www.ebay.com/itm/VERY-HIGH-QUALITY-REPRODUCTION-HORSE-HEAD-POMMEL-SABRE-SWORD/303784004928?hash=item46baf00d40:g:xNQAAOSwqARfvvlG

Here is a very handsome Italian cinquedea broadsword in very good original condition. The cinquedea (five finger) sword was a civilian weapon developed in northern Italy in the late 15th century. Many high quality copies were produced in Milan in the 1840s. I suspect this is one of those copies judging by its condition. That would make it 170-180 years old, rather than 500. Still a very fine piece. Detailed engraving of different village scenes on either side of the blade. Clasic 5 fuller blade pattern unique tp the cinquedea. Hardwood grip plaques may be later replacements. Everything is very tight. Overall length 21 1/2". Blade 16 1/4" long, 3 3/8" wide. Cross guard 6 5/8".Ebay URL:https://www.ebay.com/itm/Antique-15th-16th-Century-Italian-Cinquedea-Broadsword-Dagger-Knife-Short-Sword/274590520785?hash=item3feeded5d1:g:REAAAOSwy41ftfkR
