Default German Medieval Arms and Armor in the Museum of Varna, Bulgaria

The owner's logo is seen in most images (from the web).

Among others a German Gothic crossbow with composite bow, mid to 2nd half of the 15th century,
German medieval swords, 14th to late 15th century,
a Historismus suit of Gothic man and horse armor, in the style of ca. 1480, late 19th century;
and three German haquebut barrels:
- the one on top of cast copper alloy (bronze), ca. 1470-80,
- the lower two of wrought iron and probably of Bohemian type, ca. 1440-60 and of quite unusual simple form in that they do not have the characteristic swamped muzzle heads.

Sorry, no measurements provided.
