- Not actually Thor -

-----------------------------------------------------

Greetings weary travelers of tumblr, I am Not Thor Odinson or Oliver, which ever you prefer really?
Well I suppose I ought to explain myself. I love history and especially arms and armour, I am just a little too obsessed with mythology and Norse gods.

I love way to many TV shows and films to keep track of but I hope you find something you enjoy. Feel free to talk to me or message me anytime, I'm always happy to hear from followers and answer any question. I suggest you read my about my page before you follow. Adieu!

A SMALL-SWORD WITH PARCEL-SILVERED GILT-BRASS ROCOCO HILT AFTER THE GENRE PITTORESQUE, FRENCH OR GERMAN, CIRCA 1770

With slender blade stamped “En Tolido” (sic.) within the short fuller on both sides at the forte, gilt-brass hilt cast with rococo patterns of flowers and scrolls entwined in part about architectural ruins, with outer loop-guard widening in the middle to form a pierced interlace of ribbon gathered rosette-like about a single flowerhead, enclosing  a small shell-guard for the thumb, all cast in low relief and all set in contrast against a silvered pounced “fish-roe” ground.
