Oh yeah! Though I am the only one to provide a satisfactory explanation ...

Well, I just had to grasp two singular opportunities and buy these.
After all, accoutermemts like these range among the greatest rarissimae - most of the best museums cannot present a single item, not even of 19th c. date ...

As they are so rarely seen ever, attached find some details of three scourers from my collection.

The one in the first image, finely made and preserved in excavated condition, can be dated to the early decades of the 16th c., while the lower two are perfectly preserved, retaining all their original file traces plus fine patina, being about 100 years later/'younger'.

The first is about 8 cm long, the other two are about 6 cm.

We are not talking about girls though ...

The most interesting point I think is that in these close-ups we can exactly study how these indispensable tools were made - for probably the first time ever. It seems to me that the later they are the more complicated they were manufactured.

Btw, I think this is a topic just customized to our friend Richard ...


Best,
Michl

Snap-tinderlock arquebuses from the armories of Maximilian I; a watercolor by Jörg Kölderer, 1507, fol. 53b.

Please note the piles of unstocked barrels, both of wrought iron and brass, of ramrods, and the single detached brass barrel shown at the bottom which in each detail corresponds to the ones discussed here.

I found in my archives three fotos that I took during an exhibition at the Burda-Museum at Baden-Baden in 2009. The fotos are cut outs of big contemporary tapisseries that have been on loan from the Vienna National Museum for this exhibition.
