Just accidentally in this picture.
I do not know if this sword or cutlass.
Does anyone know anything, period, what size, can have more pictures?

I think you english would call that a sinclair-hilt. Used to be reasonably popular during the early 1600s, I believe. The example looks continental to me. You'll find more of those in this thread.

I would not characterize that as a Sinclair Hilt, does look contential, more of a broadsword look to it than a cutlass IMHO.

Hi Arek...

I have these images of the sword from Hessink Auctioneers.

Only information given is a total length of 100cm and a date of 1600.

Hope it helps.

take care

Images from Hessink Auctioneers

Two swords
Lit in Edenís flame
One of iron and one of ink
To place within a bloody hand
One of God or one of man
Our souls to one of
Two eternities

Interesting combination, engraved "MARIA" and a "flower of life" shape in the guard...
