This is a series of swords belonging to some glorious (well, according to historians,) ancestors of mine, among them an admiral, a prime minister also an oceanographer. The one with the letter O etched on the hilt is a replica of the sword presented to the admiral by King Otto ofâ€¦ â€¦against services rendered to the royal household by the former. The original was adorned with precious stones, and for obvious reasons Iâ€¦ just wish I had it.
Photographing those babies proved to be an extremely difficult task, as the lighting in the room was anything but ideal. Therefore I had to either get some extra lights, or take down the entire coat (itâ€™s huge!)and set it in some other place of the house with better lighting- a very risky affair, as the scabbards are worn and brittle owing to decay.

Interesting history, I would have used this photo in mementos.
Thank you, good friski! The entire room (a parlor actually,) looks more like a museum, hehe!
Very cool. I'd love to have something like that. I think my ancestors fought with cream pies to the face!
