Welcome aboard

There are a few mentions here regarding the Wundes family. I believe the sword is fine and would think a late 17th century assembly but possibly earlier. The blades sold to the market and then swords put together by others. I have some book references in pictures. and a couple of swords myself from the 17th and 18th centuries. Enter Wundes in the search link and those discussions will come up. Mine are later marks than the page examples and lovelies attached below. The simple loop hilt with wire is much like your sword in time.

Cheers
GC
