AN ENGLISH RAPIER C.1640

About the piece


This rapier is contemporary with the above example and incorporates the same features in response to then current thinking. The fluted circular guard is deeply embossed to present a surface capable of engaging the point of an opponent's blade and is set far enough ahead of the cross guard to accommodate the index finger. The tapered diamond section blade exceeds the 36" legal limit suggesting that the law was enforced selectively. The decorative motifs and bold execution of the decoration, both chiseled and embossed, is characteristically English.Blade length: 37 1/2"
