Two items very rare to find in detached condition, and visible from all sides :

two stirrups and a tiller trigger/trigger bar, from crossbows of the 2nd half of the 15th c.
The first stirrup: 11.9 x 0.98 x 3.4 x 9.63 cm.

Andi posted this historically important Ottoman incendiary arrow:
http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showt...0621#post170621

This rare item has been identified as an arrow rather than a crossbow bolt, for the fact that long bows were favorized in Muslim areas, and in the 16th and 17th centuries.
It has been preserved at
the Stadtmuseum of Klosterneuburg (museum of the City of Klosterneuburg) located at the Danube River, near Vienna, Lower Austria)ever since The Second Great Siege of Vienna by the Turks, 14 July through 12 September 1683!

Thanks, Andi,
and best,
Michael

Enjoy the singular occasion.

Here is another isolated stirrup. I can take some better pics if there is interest.

(I am having trouble getting the attachments from the "attach files" box to show up as images in "preview post". I hope someone can set me straight here...)

If i get it right, you may better save the selected images to your computer and upload (attach) from from there ... or simply copy the link to the thread you wish to show the images from.
By the way, attachments do not show in the "preview post" feature.
