Rapier Sword

  • Provenance: a 1940s New York collection (possibly a Francis Bannerman acquisition)

A composite sword that stands out mainly because of its unique guard, very unusual for a rapier. It has a well made hand forged 38 inch long blade with deep grooves.

The sword features intricate scrollwork decorated pierced steel cross guard and straight guards with interesting quillon tips that look like claws were added in the Victorian era.

    is it just me or does it seem like it’ll be very difficult to wield…i mean the hilt is so disproportionate to the blade...
