I remembered another example of those German baskets with a non-conical pommel.

For a discussion of this sword, and related German baskets (which the owner of the site wants to call Schiavona!), see:

The site referenced above also has some discussions on Scottish and English baskets, and is pretty good as far as the information on specific swords go.
