A fine heavy example of this iconic form which evolved after the Thirty Years' War and remained popular through 17th century. The broad 34 ¾” double edged blade beard the crisp mark of the Wundes family, the king’s head with the five point crown. The king was a reference to the Magi. The iron hilt connects the right ring guard to the pommel with two bars with double medial swells, the tips keyed into the pommel recesses. An additional bar connects the two. The left ring is supported by a thumb ring. Original wire wrapped grip. The walloon was used both by infantry and mounted troops. This example is proportioned for mounted use and the hilt sized to accommodate the gauntleted hand.
