I agree with what everyone else has said about this scabbard Brian.

I think that this might have to be considered your magnum opus. I do not believe that I have seen a piece as beautiful as this one.

Now get the rest of the outfit to do justice to this thing! Big Grin

Thanks Scott. It is definitely my magnum opus, and has been so from the beginning.

A full bodied shot added -

Beautiful (and I am sure painstaking) work Brian. Unbelievable. It's a King's sword and scabbard without question.

This scabbard contains all the symbolism that Edward III would embrace, the Fleur-De-Lis illustrating his claim to the French Throne, the Order of the Garter emblem and motto and the traditional Three Lions and Crown, symbols of the medieval English monarchy.Well Brian, you have a unique and enviable showpiece there. Some folks have commented it is a bit too busy, which for the modern taste, would be true. But one has only to visit the Sainte Chapelle in Paris, or view some of the jeweled medieval reliquaries, to appreciate that this was indeed, the High Medieval taste. Sumptuous, gilded, complex and colorful.

No one could have said that better, Henry. This is an absolute masterpiece of medieval king-worthiness. It will be waaaay hard for anyone to top...ever. Wink .......McM

Thank you Henry, I appreciate it. It was my goal to produce a scabbard I believed to be accurate to the times, and the person. And thank you again, Mark!
