ijzer, walrustand, zilver; schede: zilver, koper, leer, l 104cm. More details

This Persian sabre must have had a special significance for Cornelis Tromp, for he had himself immortalized in Roman dress with the weapon in a painting by Abraham Willaerts (in the centre of this display case). Such references to Classical antiquity were extremely common in this period.
