Hi,

Here are the pics I took during my last visit to the musee de paris. I used to go there often when I lived in France...and loved it then. But with further education in these subjects I now rediscover it all and I can't help to wonder at the treasures you can find there...the amount of things to look at is simply overwhelming.

Enjoy!

J

Sword, French, around 1350 (One of a my favourite type XIV, alongside the one in the MET)
Presumably of royal origins but without solid proof to back it up.
Found in a tomb in southern france during the 19th century
Broad blade with deep fuller, bearing the following inscription:
"nulla de virtutibus tuis major clementia est" (mercy is the best of your virtues)
There is a hole in the pommel, and crystal disks closing the gap, thought to have contained relics
The grip was bound with wire.







Another beautifull type XIV (with a very unusual hilt for its type), a falchion.







Sword and scabbard of a french "Connétable"
Late XV century








A couple of cinquedea and scabbards, a hunting knife












A handfull of rondels and ballock daggers






sword (below) used for Don Martin's coronation in 1399 (king of Aragon and Sicily), in Saragosse
Spain, 1290
Martin the first sent for this sword, thought to have belonged to the Emperor constantin





Sword (below) made for francois 1er

Hilt : French (1510-1515)
Blade: Italien, around 1480

Yet again thank you! Some great stuff in this batch. I love the two brazil nuts in the one photo! There is a rondel that I like very much too. Kudos to you for posting these and the others!

Not posted them here yet!
Uploading pictures is tedious work and it was getting late last night, so here they are, among other things.

Enjoy.

Julien, great pics, thanks for posting them.

Regarding the Falchion do you have any further information about it? Was there an information plaque at the museum? If so did you take a picture of it?

There are several more pics of the Falchion on Flickr, however I've been unable to find any information about it.

Thanks

Danny

Hi Danny,

Unfortunately the plaque at the museum was not very informative. The falchion was described as a mere "sword", XIV century.

It is a beautifull piece and would deserve more exposure (it shares a dark enclosure with a dozen other swords).

Cheers,

J
