~ A 16th Century German Blade Mounted On A 17th Century Hilt ~
Here we have a brilliant example of a sword used through the generations.
The blade was made between approximately 1550 and 1580 by a German smith named Heinrich Koel for the Spanish market (hence he's written his name as Enrique Coel and EN ALAMANIA which is clever branding) and presumably handed down through generations since this blade is mounted on a hilt that appeared nearer c1700 as was relatively common occurrence when one had a blade in the family.
Not only this but the sword also has the majority of a centuries old scabbard just ripe for display or restoration.
The blade would have originally been mounted on a late medieval combat sword.
