Hello my name is***** am a certified appraiser. I would be happy to help yu. I have a few questions........... are there any markings on the items? what are the measurements of these and are both the same? Thank you I look forward to helping you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There are no markings that I can find. Is there a specific place I should look? They appear to be welded on the back side. Looks hand made. Heights 27" width 23". Weight around 15 pounds. Swords and flails are detachable.

Hi markings usually would have been on back side and easily readable. If not marked that is fine also as they were made for props, decor, several ways these were made and used. Thank you I will post back here promptly when done

Hello, these were done for decoration. You will find a lot of these at Renaissance fairs, restaurants, man caves things of this nature. The value on a set of these currently in today's market is $185-250.00 Roughly 2'x 2' these were made in pairs and hung together with nice medieval swords hung in between. They accented the center main piece. By the way this one is designed I would say the year made if late 1980s early 1990. Very nice piece.****If I have answered all your questions and helped you please rate my answer as this is how I am paid from the site.
