Celtic Short Sword

£75.00
This Celtic Sword features an anthropomorphic hilt - the human form must have been intended to enhance the power of the owner and to bear a talismanic significance. The British Museum has some excellent examples of this style of the sword in its collection. This replica is of a type associated with the La Tène culture, named after the important Celtic site on Lake Neuchâtel in present-day Switzerland and eastern France.
The Celtic sword features a polished bronze hilt with bone grip - both associated with high status. The blade is hand-forged from steel and is housed in a hand-stitched leather scabbard. This item has a blunt blade and is manufactured for display only.
