An excellent and highly original French European 17th Century Hunting Military Hanger Sword. This is a sword of high quality and comprises a carved ivory hilt with human-head pommel. The deeply cut iron crossguard and quillons are of swirling style and end with human-head quillons. The blade has a wide, single fuller that runs for the full length of the blade. The blade is plain and unmarked. I would guess that this was the type of sword that would have been carried by a gentleman of high status as it would costed a considerable amount of money to purchase at the time. Ironically, this is probably being sold at a cheaper price now when compared to what it would have cost in the 17th Century. The sword is in good condition overall – there has been some damage to the top of the ivory hilt on one side and there is an age rack to the other side – quite normal in swords of this great age. Blade length is 18.5 inches (25.5 inches overall).
