Another Pre-Culloden Scottish baskethilt sword c.1690-1720 From the same collection as item 0023. The guard has the "S" design which stood for "Stewart" (noble family in Scotland) These swords were often stored in the thatched roofs to keep the British from finding their weapons. Because of this, Not many survived the wet conditions. Blade is marked with a kings head several times on each side. I believe it is made by Mattias Wundes, German maker during the 16th c. Blade is 32 inches. 37.5 inches overall.
