Default Partisan 16t - 17th ?

Hello,

Can you tell me more about the engraving of this partisan? According to you, is it from the 16th or 17th century?

On one side is represented Saint Jean Baptiste and the lamb of God and the other a coat of arms, I think Spanish but which one?

What I can see is a part of the great coat of arms of the kingdom of Spain before 1600. So I think your partisan was belonging to a troop in duty at the Spanish court

Sharp eye, Udo .
Amazing how this style is so similar to MY EXAMPLE, which i took as Portuguese. But then, we can not ignore the Iberian context.

Thanks for the information. Indeed the similarity is exact Fernando. I think the borders are permeable for this type of weapon

Is it possible to highlight the details?
This one is very good partisan eye candy.

Udo, are you sure this is the Royal coat of arms of Spain ? Do i see some unusual symbols there ?
Maybe the arms of a Spanish noble house ? .

May be you are right, the cross could stand for Sardinia, so it may be the Spanish Sardinia variant of 1580-1668. The lamb of God has certainly nothing to do with the coat of arms but what it stands for I don't know. May be it is the lamb of the "Golden Vlies"?

Looks to me like a cross potent (Jerusalem).
Interestingly the coat of arms you show has the Portuguese inescutcheon; which make sense as, by then, Portugal was part of the Filipes crown.

Hi all,
beautiful example of a Partisan!
Maybe it looks like a beginning of XVI century model, maybe Northern Italy production.

Details that suggest me this datation are :
-presence of pointille technique, in use between the end of XV and beginning of XVI century.
-presence of an hight crest on the center that is very tipical of italian production between the last quarter of XV century, beginning of XVI. You can see same geometry on some venetian estoc blades.
-You can see, from comparison with the later example you have, also that the socket have a more conical shape and octagonal section (very typical also of XV-XVI century hafted weapons made in Italy).
-The shape is very triangular and the base of blade is very very large (also typical of this region-date. You will notice that in the later example the blade shape is not as triangular, and near the point the angulation became more repentine, this is peculiar of second half of XVI-XVII century partisans.

You can find some examples here, Italian as suggested by RA too.
