Richard,
That seems like you're on to something! Might be time to narrow my search to Thailand. The spear guards seem to be in the same family, and the dagger shape, although contemporary, is at...

[QUOTE=fernando]Because when Frederico and Leonor married (1452) Eneas was still a cardinal; he was only entronized in 1458, right ?

Good call - he was not yet Pope when they were married. Here is...

I think it is the wedding of Eleanor and Fredrick. I found a picture by Pinturicchio (c. 1505) that depicts the same scene. Note the headpiece of Pope Pius.

A very rough initial translation of the...

The 9th picture of this set is an image that is used again in a picture in the next set that is identified as an 'Ottoman'. The clothing looks like Robin Hood, to me, but the sword at the waist says...

The martyrdom of Saints is a frequent Medieval theme. I know we don't typically discuss some of the more ghastly applications of the arms we collect, but this still has value as source material.

Thanks Richard!
The buniak spear you reference doesn't quite have the same blade profile, and it looks like it might be mounted by a socket vs. a tang? Still, there is some similarity, so not a bad...
