Designs Sword Sheaths (left and middle) and for a Dagger Pommel (right)

Cornelis Bos Netherlandish

Not on view

Print with three designs for the decoration of weapons with grotesque motifs. This sheet contains designs for a dagger pommel and for the sheath of a sword. Cornelis Bos may have been inspired to create these designs through a two-year stay in Nuremberg between 1546 and 1548, where he may have encountered the prints of Augustin Hirschvogel.
