North European Broadsword, Possibly Swedish, ca. 1630

Hilt of Walloon type formed of flat bars with asymmetrical side rings; each fitted with its original pierced iron plate, the reverse featuring a thumb ring. Reverse scrolled quillon; knuckle bow with expanded central section joined to the flat heart-shaped pommel with button. Later twisted copper wire grip wrap with central longitudinal iron bar and brass turks heads top and bottom. Broad 37 1/4" hexagonal-section blade with a series of stamped rectangles inside a line border at the forte on each side; showing lamination, areas of pitting, and numerous nicks from blade strikes. Overall length 43 ". Dating to the Thirty Years War, this is a fighting sword made for a mounted soldier and undoubtedly saw a lot of action. Very good complete condition showing wear and use commensurate with its age and purpose.
