Hello,

I'm looking for pictures from different angles of the Rondel Dagger (A.729) from the Wallace Collection. The dagger is pictured below, and taken from the article Spotlight: Rondel Dagger found in the features section here on myArmoury. I'm mainly looking for a picture of the top of the pommel, but any additional pictures would be great. I would appreciate any help, and thank you in advance.



Todd

WC has a color photo and specs on their site. Go to "Explore the Collection" and search for daggers.

Hi Sean,


Thanks for your help. Yes, I've seen that picture as well. I actually have various pictures of this dagger, but I've never found one that shows the top of the pommel. I'm planning on getting a reproduction done on this piece, and want to know if the pommel top is decorated or etched in any way. Thanks again for your help.

Off-hand, I do not believe I have additional photos of that dagger from the Wallace Collection.

The attached photos are not from the Wallace Collection, but they are of a similar dagger. Perhaps they can help server as further inspiration.

Wow, thanks Nathan. Those are amazing pictures.
May I ask were they are from, and do you have any additional information on them?

I'm fairly sure they are from the Bayerisches Armeemuseum Ingolstadt, Germany. They aren't my photos and I do not know the source.
