Spider web Quillon dagger Late 14th Early 15th - SOLD

This medieval quillon dagger was based on a the original in the Royal Armouries collection. It is a very unusual piece and I think unique which of course makes it hard to date exactly.

It is English and around 1400, but otherwise an unknown type. The blade has a series of cut outs on the false edge, for no apparent reason. The guard and pommel are bronze, engraved with a spiders web motif. The grip is cord bound leather and the dagger comes complete with a double layer brown naturally tanned sheath with some incised decoration front and rear and finished with a bronze chape.

29.5cm/11.5" blade

42cm/16.5" overall
