Coins of Spain
Medieval Spain, Bronze Scabbard Chape, c. 15th - 16th Century

|Medieval| |Artifacts|, |Medieval| |Spain,| |Bronze| |Scabbard| |Chape,| |c.| |15th| |-| |16th| |Century|
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.
AS110892. bronze scabbard chape, 54.2mm long, 15th - 16th century; hollow shield shaped, curved sides converging at the base, a solid rounded knob terminal, curved upper edge with a raised lip on the front, rectangular opening on the back; $60.00 (55.20)

Netherlands, Philip II of Spain, Lord of the 17 Provinces, Resistance Against the Dutch Rebels, 1575

|Spain|, |Netherlands,| |Philip| |II| |of| |Spain,| |Lord| |of| |the| |17| |Provinces,| |Resistance| |Against| |the| |Dutch| |Rebels,| |1575||jeton|
Philip II was King of Spain, Portugal, and Naples and Sicily, as well as Duke of Milan, and lord of the Seventeen Provinces of the Netherlands. During his marriage to Queen Mary I (1554-58), he was also King of England and Ireland from 1555. His empire included territories on every continent then known to Europeans, including his namesake the Philippine Islands. The expression "The Empire on which the sun never sets" was coined to reflect the extent of his possessions. Philip's finances were troubled by state bankruptcies in 1557, 1560, 1569, 1575, and 1596. His rule in the Netherlands faced many difficulties, including open warfare beginning in 1568. In 1572 an exiled member of the Dutch aristocracy, William the Silent (Prince of Orange), invaded the Netherlands with a Protestant army. The Dutch Republic was created by a declaration of independence in 1581. The war, however, known as the Eighty Years' War, only came to an end in 1648, when Spain finally recognized the Dutch Republic as independent.
