Breughel Messer with Eating set and belt - SOLD *

In many of Breughels’ paintings you see fairly low status men carrying short messers often with a side ring and a knuckle bow.  This form of short sword was popular throughout the 16thC.

They were often fairly crude and are shown slung from a baldric. Clearly they are working items and not just for show and the owners give the impression they were used as tools as much weapons.

Blade length 39cm/15"

Overall length 51cm/21"

Grip length 9.5cm/3.75"
