Scarce and early English c.1690 cavalry troopers’s basket-hilted broadsword
This is late-17th/early 18th Century English cavalry trooper’s basket hilt and would have been carried by a heavy cavalryman. It features a large iron basket hilt of Scottish Highland style with heart-shaped and rounded piercings. The pommel is apple-shaped and this feature is very typical of English cavalry trooper’s swords of the period. The blade is of backsword type and with a double fuller and is deeply impressed to both sides with the running wolf mark of Solingen, Germany – England purchased many blades from German sword makers at this time.
