    Schiavona Baskethilt Sword, 17th Century.

    Approximately 40 1/2-inches overall with a 34-inch straight double edged blade. Fitted with a very fine intricate baskethilt showing a flared design, but of typical fashion for a Schiavona design.

According to consignor records, this sword was bought in May of 1986 and invoiced by Arbour Antiques Ltd (Proprietor-R.J. Wigington). Photocopy included.
