S4 circa 1680 Spanish cup hilt broadsword













ITEM # swd-4

This is another beautiful early European sword ,the blade is 34 inch & is double edged with a single fuller ,the inside of the fuller is marked "Min Sinel Hes Santisimo" which I am told translates to "My sign is the holy cross"
Also on the blade inside the bowl where i cant photograph it there is some more engraving,one part appears to be a Catholic cross with decoration below,
The guard is a steel cup complete with steel knucklebow,fluted ivory grip & ball pommel,
The sword has a polished patina,with area's of light pits & staining,none are detracting from its looks or value,Its a truly beautiful sword that was used ,There is a very very small slight repair on one cross arm where it meets the bowl,i can just make out a small spot of braise,size of a match head or there about,
a great addition to any early European sword or armour collection,

Price-$3950 Aud
