    Combination quiver Medieval Western Europe

    Post by Jason D on Wed Jul 02, 2014 7:43 pm

    I was wondering if anyone has a source on combination quivers. In this case a combination of hunting sword/ large hunting knife and quiver? The only one that I recall seeing is in Phebus. Has anyone ever seen one in a museum collection or any contemporary art? Ideally 15th century sources.

    Thanks, Jason

    Hi Jason,

    I asked this same question a few years back on myArmoury; we ended up with three clear 15th C images: http://www.myarmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t=24845

    As a result, Tod then made one for an Albion Vassal, which is still for sale. Details of the construction are here: http://www.myarmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t=29217

    I don't mean to direct people away from this forum, but thought you'd like to see the images and commentary!
