Beautiful mid 18th C. German or Italian Horseman's Pallash Sword
|( ID: es533 )|
A truly wonderful sword. This example is mounted with a large and beautiful made hilt that covers the whole hand, and is made from hand chased and gilded brass. The fire gilding remains throughout much of the handle and the wear that shows through is just enough to know that you're holding an 18th C. example. It retains its original scabbard, and is mounted with a fantastic late 17th C. German blade that maker marked on both sides to Willem Tesch Solingen. A showpiece for any collector to be proud of. Overall length is 38", and blade is 30 1/2"
