Default A Bundle and Lengths of 17th C. Matchcord, Armémuseum Stockholm

The bundle on top weighs 3.4 kg and might measure 10 m in length.

Simliar to the images I posted before, the close-ups allow to study the characteristic fibrous structure of match rope.


And a detached matchlock mechanism, Swedish, 1620's.


Best,
Michael
