A beautiful piece of work.
Where did the information come from regarding the retailer?
Do you, by chance, happen to know the price?

I have seen one missive from the mid. 1700s where a chap complains:
"...can't get a handsome sword for 5 or 6, so have ventured to 8 lOs .... ".
That is a retail price of over 2,000 today, but a lot more in the relative cost of manual labour.

The hallmarks on my WK boat-shell colichemarde (posted in an earlier thread) show: WK; Lion; Leopard; ?. I can't make out the date mark.
