The books you noted on the actors as swordsmen, but nothing on the weapons they used.

I have just acquired a 'Celtic/La Tene' sword, with an anthropomorphic hilt in cast bronze, nicely stamped 'Verch & Flothow', Charlottenburg' They made weapons for stage combat for the Charlottenburg Palace Theatre in Berlin late 19c/early 20c. They made swords for plays and operas covering all periods.

I can't find much by googling that, but I did find one of their rapiers that went for a multi-thousand Euro price recently.

I've been told they were made with German meticulousness, with the same methods an original antique one would have been.

You might be able to use that and branch out your research.
