Thread: Real Blade or Wall Hanger?

    Real Blade or Wall Hanger?

    Hello

    What are your thoughts on this sword?
    I know the quality is awful.
    I am more interested in the blade than the handle.
    The blade is 23.50 inches long
    I know the handle is of poor quality.
    No maker marks
    Thank you
    Tony

    The etching seems a copy of those used at Toledo factory in 1870s-1880s reminiscent of renaissance models.
    Probably a wall hanger workshop in Toledo early XXth century. Lion and castle that is quite Castillan.
    La vida amable, el enemigo hombre fuerte, ordinario el peligro, natural la defensa, la Ciencia para conseguirla infalible, su estudio forçoso, y el exercicio necessario conviene al que huviere de ser Diestro, no ignore la teorica, para que en la practica, el cuerpo, el braço, y los instrumentos obren lo conveniente a su perfeccion. --Don Luis Pacheco de Narvaez.
