32 5/8" blade tapered through its length and suitable for thrusting as well as slashing, suiting Italian fencing techniques. The fullers marked I O N O N E N I S ......., a spurious attribution by an illiterate workman, perhaps attempting to inscribe "IOANES BRACH." Forged down curved guards with scroll terminals forming blade catchers. Integral ring guard with a corrugated plate below and a smaller ring following. The three elements riveted together as is typical for these. Quillons and both ring guards well forged with incised hatching, ribbing and scalloped work. Fine wire wrapped grip and large spherical pommel for balance. Fine family kept condition and often found for Italian arms which were displayed in the homes of wealthy families as a display of power. Many such weapons were brought home by returning WWII soldiers.
