Medieval Spain, Bronze Scabbard Chape, c. 15th - 16th Century
NEW In the London Museum medieval catalogue, Ward-Perkins dates similar chapes to the late 15th or 16th century. He suggests that metal dagger chapes were only used on the sheaths of military daggers or the more elaborate forms of civilian dagger. The great majority of surviving leather sheaths belonged to ordinary knives or knife-daggers and these have no metal terminal.AS97017. bronze scabbard chape, 58.7mm long, 12.9mm wide, 10.4mm thick, Complete but cracked, 15th - 16th century; hollow shield shaped, decorated with diagonal lines, a solid rounded knob terminal, curved upper edge with a raised lip on the front, rectangular opening on the back; $40.00 SALE |PRICE| $36.00

Kingdom of Naples, Charles V (HRE), 1516 - 1554
Though always at war, Charles was a lover of peace. "Not greedy of territory," wrote Marcantonio Contarini in 1536, "but most greedy of peace and quiet." Charles pushed for the convocation of the Council of Trent, which began the Counter-Reformation. It was during Charles reign that Spain conquered the Aztecs of Mexico and Incas of Peru, and then extended its control across much of South and Central America. Charles provided five ships to Ferdinand Magellan whose voyage was the first circumnavigation of the Earth. He retired in 1556. The Habsburg Monarchy passed to his younger brother Ferdinand, and the Spanish Empire was inherited by his son Philip II. The two empires would remain allies until the 18th century. Charles was only 54 when he retired, but after 34 years of energetic rule he was physically exhausted and sought the peace of a monastery where he died aged 58. Charles' motto, Plus Ultra ('Further Beyond'), became the national motto of Spain.SH66322.
