My humble collection of swords
Favs: 0SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 28/48Score: 60% (0)4962 views

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 of… …against services rendered to the royal household by the former. The original was adorned with precious stones, and for obvious reasons I… 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 (it’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.

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!
