Circa 1750 Spanish Bilbo Rapier, Garcia Julian,
In generally good condition, circa 1750 Spanish Bilbo Rapier,
mark of Garcia Julian (Toledo & Cuenca).
The small T mark is for Garcia Julian, Toledo & Cuenca, mid
18C. There are many interpretations for the text aside it; it appears
to be "V I IIAIIAV".
The 35 3/8 blade is in overall very good condition, some rust spots
but overall good and firm in the hilt. The hardwood grip has lost
its cover and inset bars but is good. The hilt / guard is overall
very good but with patina and some light rust.
A very good example at well below market prices, yours for £?
