Rare Scottish Medieval Sword
Dated: early 15th Century and later
Dimensions: 78cm; 30 3/4in blade
The sword has a double-edged blade cut with a short fuller on each face and with traces of a running wolf mark incised on the front. Later cross-piece formed of a pair of straight downward-slanted quillons with flattened spatulate terminals and pronounced écusson.
Well formed wheel pommel drawn upwards at the top to form a stalk encasing the tip of the tang. The present sword is of the type illustrated on the tomb of Gilbert de Greenlau at Kinkell churchyard, Aberdeenshire. Another example is preserved in the Glasgow Art Gallery.
