Sales enquiries

A rare mortuary hilted English broadsword with 16C Passau Wolf markings to blade, plus "J H J H J H" (possibly "I H I H I H") almost certainly for Johann Hoppe, a top blade smith in Passau in 1520.

The 38 inch blade most likely indicates this sword was carried by a cavalry officer. It is worn but still very sound and quite firm in the hilt. The hilt again is aged but overall, some small holes from earlier rust, but overall still sound and in original form. The leather bound grip is a later replacement.

A very rare sword with a rarer blade. My reference number is 906. Full sized / further images available upon request.
