The arbalete or pellet crossbow was used primarily as a hunting weapon. As such, its use was restricted to nobility and the aristocracy. This example is of classic Mediterranean form most associated with Italy, but used in France as well. The walnut cheek rest stock is embellished with a carved floral rosette and sea shell motif to the grip bottom. The iron fittings are engraved and retains some original blued finish suggesting that it was stored in a hunting lodge or castle since the period of its use. 33" overall length.
