Thank you so much.
By Paris I guess you are referring to the Musée de l'Armée. When I was there by appointment, I sadly had to find out that the medieval department was closed.
Could you please let me know whether the attached quarrel casket is also there? (all images copied from the site quoted in post 123).
Please do post more images anyway - some folks here are definitely waiting to see you sharing your archives!!!
Btw, here is the fine Paris crossbow, ca. 1460-70, together with a matching late-15th c. cranequin.
