Rare European Officer's Campaign Rapier Sword Ca.1630

This is a very interesting early 17th c. European officer's campaign sword or feld-degen. The middle section of the knuckle-bow is shaped in the form of two balls, as is the quillon tip, a feature we begin to see during the Thirty Year War on Northern-European martial hilts of the so-called Walloon style, and similar. The front loop guard hides a narrow slot that once held some type of inner guard, perhaps a smaller loop, or a shell, now long gone. The massive pear-shaped pommel balances the blade quite nicely. The blade is 81 cm long, it is sharply-tapering from being 4 cm wide at the hilt to the still sharp point. Each fuller on either side of the blade is inscribed ANTONI MILANI, perhaps signifying a Milanese blade-maker. The original turned wood grip has a acquired a superb glistening patina.
This combination of features suggest the approximate age of this sword as being from the early 17th c. into the 1630s, perhaps North European or German in origin. It's a true military weapon, an officer's battle sword, with a fully-developed thumb ring, with a simple, sturdy hilt, made to withstand the travails of near-constant wear, and with a well-made, well-tempered blade, that still retains the gentlemanly characteristics of the earlier weapons.
The sword is quite tight, with no loose parts, and has developed a nice uniform ANTIQUE WEAPONS AND BOOKS ON ARMS AND WWW.SAILORINSADDLE.COM
