Sold Item Notice

With the heads of King William III (England) / II (Scotland) and Queen Mary II who jointly reigned from 1689 to 1694, embossed to the guard. The blade bears the "Kings Head Mask" which some thought depicted the previous King James II / VII, but this sword tends to prove that it is actually a Solingen (Prussia) maker's mark.
