German arming sword

A sword such as this object would have been used in combat when a solider was 'armed'. The robust, sharply pointed blade would have easily cut and overpowered opponents on the field of battle and would have effectively been able to attack mail and bash plate armour. This German arming sword features a twsited perfume stopper pommel, and twisted terminals on its quillons. There are remnants of gilding at the base of the grip and is notable for its unusual trapezium-shaped fingerloop.
