Hi Samuel,

Thank you so much for your clarifying notes! As you see I just tried to give a short overview specifying only a bit on my main subject, the haquebut barrels.

Of course you are perfectly right about the two late 15th century swords: the saber is most probably of Hungarian production, with the pommel showing a clear Venetian stylistic influence. The broadsword next to the saber is a characteristic piece of Venice type, datable to ca. 1475-1490.

Thanks again and best wishes,
Michael
