From the William Fagan Premier Collection

This fine rapier is distinguished by retaining a considerable original gold overlay. It gives us a glimpse of what most fine weapons would have looked like when they were being used. While most rapiers survive in the white, with bare iron surfaces, each had a surface treatment when produced. Many were blued or browned (russet) but a considerable proportion were gold or silver overlaid which served to protect the hilt as well as enhance them aesthetically. This example is of further interest as it represents the cup-hilt rapier in its most highly developed form, with long elegant thrusting blade and robust grip for the gloved fencer's hand. 44" length blade.
