Beautiful attic find Scottish basket hilted broadsword. The sword needs a little attention (handle, see picture) but is otherwise a very nice collector piece.
It is a very typical and known type of sword.


The basket-hilted sword is a sword type of the early modern era characterised by a basket-shaped guard that protects the hand. The basket hilt is a development of the quillons added to swords' crossguards since the Late Middle Ages. In modern times, this variety of sword is also sometimes referred to as the broadsword.

The basket-hilted sword was generally in use as a military sword, in contrast with the rapier, the slim duelling sword worn with civilian dress during the same period, although each did find some use in both military and civilian contexts. A further distinction applied by arms historians and collectors is that a true broadsword possesses a double-edged blade, while similar wide-bladed swords with a single sharpened edge and a thickened back are called backswords. Various forms of basket-hilt were mounted on both broadsword and backsword blades.[3]

The sale, purchase and possession of arms are subject to national laws and regulations. Please ensure that you are familiar with the laws and regulations of your country BEFORE placing a bid. The sale of weapons to persons under the age of 18 is prohibited.
