Not on view

This sheet and two others in the collection (acc. nos. 2015.99 and 2015.101) are rare examples of finished design drawings for the decoration of firearms and edged weapons created in the workshop of Eusebio Zuloaga, gunmaker to the Spanish monarchs, keeper of the Royal Armory in Madrid, and the most famous Spanish metalworker of the mid-nineteenth century. This sheet shows both sides of a luxurious knife or dagger sheath, which would have been made in the Zuloaga workshops in Madrid or Eibar.
