Magnificent Jeweled Medici Dagger, ca. 1840. This one-of-a-kind ceremonial dagger is perhaps the most unique and exceptional piece we have ever offered. Constructed entirely of fine silver with a pierced filigree hilt of exceptional quality and detail. The obverse is studded with 4 large emeralds (approx. 17.6 total carats), 133 smaller diamonds, ranging in size from approx. 1.5mm to 3.5mm (120 original rose-cut and 13 later full-cut), and mounted with a 7.5mm pearl on the pommel. The central feature is a gold Medici Family crest, surmounted by a band of diamonds with gold border and crowned with a diamond-studded fleur de lis. The reverse is gilded and mounted with 5 cabochon-cut turquoise, 3.5mm to 5mm in diameter. One stone appears to be absent, but close examination of the setting shows it to be different than those holding the turquoise, indicating it was possibly a different gem. The solid silver 6 3/8″ blade features acanthus decoration at the forte and an inscribed name (Enrico?). Overall length 11 3/8″, weight 176.5 grams. Included is a certified gem assessment by an accredited gemological lab, though nobody has been able to offer an actual appraisal given the rarity and importance of this unique piece. Everywhere I have taken this piece I have watched jaws drop with amazement when people see it. It is an amazing piece which photos cannot begin to do justice to. The Medici’s were one of Europe’s wealthiest and most influential families from the 14th to the 18th Century. They were instrumental in igniting the Renaissance throughout Europe. Four popes were from the family. While the family had declined politically by the first half of the 18th century, this dagger is proof that their wealth and prestige continued far into the next century.

FINE AND RARE GERMAN HAND AND A HALF SWORD C.1620. This magnificent sword was surely made to order for a wealthy and probably titled owner. It is a hand and a half broadsword made for use in one hand or two, depending on the situation. It is related to a group of swords dating to the early 17th century, mainly decorated with animal head pommels and quillon terminals. The use of human heads is less well known, but several examples exist. A notable example, evidently related to and possible by the same artisan is in the collection of the Historsche Museum, Dresden, #VI/341. Features distinctive to both examples are the form of the ears and the wedge shaped rolled collar. The base of the 32 3/4" double edged blade is decorated with a scrolling tendril from which three flowers bloom, growing from a fruit. The reference is obviously to the cycle of birth and renewal a popular theme offering hope in troubled times.
