A absolutely ideal addition to a library of Fine Bindings, complete with the original and amazing looking Russian Romanov ‘Tesak’ sawback sword, bearing full Russian Romanov inspection markings, TM, a date, , plus other cyrillic markings to the blade and scabbard. It took us quite a while to trace the swords markings in our lexicon of 19th century European swords reference works. Curiously through our research these swords that appear to have survived the war in Russia were mostly in the Russian armoury store at Sebastepol during the war, and they were ‘liberated’ by the British soldiers from the armoury, and then used against the Russians in combat by the British. Curiously this example found its way to Spain and was acquired some 50 years or so ago. The broad slightly curved single edged blade with wide fuller on the both sides, and has a saw back-edge.

Plastic and pictorial iconography—painting, sculpture, mosaic—also offer abundant testimony to the jewelry worn in various eras. It is probable that prehistoric humans thought of decorating the body before they thought of making use of anything that could suggest clothing. Before precious metals were discovered, people who lived along the seashore decorated themselves with a great variety of shells, fishbones, fish teeth, and coloured pebbles. People who lived inland used as ornaments materials from the animals they had killed for food: After they had been transformed from their natural state into various elaborate forms, these materials, together with animal skins and bird feathers, provided sufficient decoration.

This era was followed by one that saw a transition from a nomadic life to a settled social order and the subsequent birth of the most ancient civilizations. Most peoples settled along the banks of large rivers, which facilitated the development of agriculture and animal husbandry. Indirectly, this also led to the discovery of virginal alluvial deposits of minerals, first among which were gold and precious stones.

Over the years the limited jewelry forms of prehistoric times multiplied until they included ornaments for every part of the body. For the head there were crowns, diadems, tiaras, hairpins, combs, earrings, nose rings, lip rings, and earplugs. For the neck and torso there were necklaces, fibulae the ancient safety pin , brooches, pectorals breastplates , stomachers, belts, and watch fobs. For the arms and hands armlets, bracelets, and rings were fashioned.

A sword, brooch, ceremonial shield, and decorated bronze crown with a single arch, [e] which sat directly on the head of its wearer, were found inside the tomb of the Mill Hill Warrior. A heptarchy of new kingdoms began to emerge. One of the methods used by regional kings to solidify their authority over their territories was the use of ceremony and insignia. The monk, Augustine , became the first Archbishop of Canterbury. Within two centuries, the ritual of anointing monarchs with holy oil and crowning them initially with helmets in a Christian ceremony had been established, and regalia took on a religious identity.

There was still no permanent set of coronation regalia; each monarch generally had a new set made, with which he or she was usually buried upon death.

The monk, Augustine , became the first Archbishop of Canterbury. Within two centuries, the ritual of anointing monarchs with holy oil and crowning them initially with helmets in a Christian ceremony had been established, and regalia took on a religious identity. There was still no permanent set of coronation regalia; each monarch generally had a new set made, with which he or she was usually buried upon death. In the earliest known depiction of an English king wearing a crown, he is shown presenting a copy of Bede ‘s Life of St Cuthbert to the saint himself.

Whether or not they wore such an item is questionable. The monks at his burial place of Westminster Abbey claimed that Edward had asked them to look after his regalia in perpetuity and that they were to be used at the coronations of all future kings. In centuries to come, it would expand to include, among other objects, an orb and a pair of armills or bracelets traditionally worn by the monarch at coronations.

Being crowned and invested with regalia owned by a previous monarch who was also a saint reinforced the king’s authority.
