Saxon-type rapier in 16th century style

This silver-mounted Saxon-type rapier is likely the work of notorious Dresden-based forger Anton Konrad. Konrad was one of the most successful forgers of edged weapons over a 30 year period in the early 20th century, with some of his most accomplished pieces being copies of swords and daggers of originals from the Saxon Royal Armouries. Many of these sword and daggers were sprayed with acid to simulate age-related corrosion.
