254) Strong Box Circa 1550 Rare Domed Trunk. Size: 13cm x 13.5cm x 8cm. The smallest sizes are the rarest. Priced to sell at $1,995!* 81) The Exceptionally Elegant Etched Swords from the Ducal Guard are all numbered and may be divided into two series, one dated 1573 and the other 1574. The blades are generally inscribed with the date, an arsenal number and the crowned Ducal monogram IH. There are minor variations within each series and it would appear from the numbered swords extant that there were a total of around 600 swords in this group - with numbers in each series being recorded in the 290's. In 1573 a sword was delivered to Wolfenbüttel by the armourer Wolf Gabriel and it has been suggested that this sword on offer was a prototype for the group since it is not numbered, thus making it possibly the most valuable sword of its group. Given the large number of differing bladesmith's marks and the variation in minor details it is likely that the order for both the 1573 and 1574 swords was contracted to a number of swordsmith's. Length of blade 51 3/4 inches Length of sword 74 inches. Provenance: The Brunswick Ducal Zeughaus, Wolfenbüttel. A Museum Treasure That Is Very Well Priced For Most Collectors.

In 1604, Christian IV started buying military swords from armies throughout Europe to be sold to the farmers in his country who had been there since 1589 as an added support to his army. The Tessak sword most often had a curved blade with a shallow, wide fuller all the way down the blade. The Tessak arrived in Norway around the year 1600. Most swords were used and had age to them. Every year the farmer had to bring his weapons to the Våpenting (weapons meet) in order to prove that he still had his mandatory weapon.
