Highly unusual and scarce English C.1640 Dish Hilt Rapier Sword
This is a very fine example of an English early 17th Century dish hilt rapier sword with chiselled decoration to the dish hilt. The sword is probably unique in that it has a highly distinctive carved horn grip that has the appearance of a bamboo stalk. The pommel is of large, globular form and the knucklebow and hilt bars are of bilobate style. Blade is inlaid with brass lettering and symbols. A very attractive piece.
Condition of the Sword
In excellent condition for its age - small losses to the grip.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 34 inches (40 inches overall).
