I found this hand and a half sword browsing the Longsword album on Facebook and was immediately struck by the design, as I've always been a fan of the German/Saxon styled flared quillons and - in this case - side rings. What interests me here is the crossover middle ring. That's a feature I haven't seen much of - particularly with this style.

Does anyone else have similar hilts they can share with me for reference?

I like that hilt style, too.

I can't really tell what exactly you are pointing to... your graphic is non-specific and appears to point at two different areas of the hilt.

Have a look at Wallace Collection A491:

Having said that, take a look at this topic:

It may contain something of interest.
