FINE SPANISH TOLEDO EARED DAGGER IN 16TH CEN. STYLE Lot : 22 Auction Date: June 12, 2016 Estimate: $2,500.00 - $5,000.00 Starting Price: $500.00 Condition: In the 14th century an interesting version of the Rondel dagger appeared. This was the eared dagger, which shares its heritage with the blade known to the Turks as the yatagan and to the Cossacks as the shashqa. The pommel of eared daggers was split in two to allow the thumb to be hooked over the pommel to impart greater force to the stabbing blow. Curiously, despite its odd appearance, the eared dagger became widely associated with royalty and was also a favorite weapon of assassins in Italy during the 15th and 16th centuries. An Eared dagger is a relatively rare and exotic form of dagger that was used during the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. It is so named because the pommel of the dagger has a very distinctive shape, somewhat resembling human ears. Eared daggers frequently have a single sharpened edge that ends in an acute point. It is thought that the eared dagger was introduced to Europe from Spain, where it presumably originated from the Moors. 

Offered here is a fine later example of such Nobleman's dagger, from the Toledo Spain arms makers, famous throughout the whole world for making some of the Finest weapons in the World's history, having beautiful quality chiseled and gold inlaid blade

The Ecole Royale Militaire, or Royal Military College, was founded in 1751 and closed in 1787, having changed its name to Ecole des Cadets-gentilhommes around 1776/77.

Napoleon Bonaparte attended the college in 1784, leaving in October, 1785 as a second class lieutenant of artillery. Napoleon returned in 1795 to establish his command headquarters in the building.

19. GOVERNING LAW & JURISDICTION. By bidding at HELIOS auction the purchaser or bidder agrees that the binding contract, created by these terms and conditions of sale, is made and performed in the State of New York, and should any dispute arise from this contract the jurisdiction for contractual disputes is the State and County of New York. The rights and obligations hereunder are governed by New York law, excluding its conflict of law rules. All bidders and sellers irrevocably consent to service of process or any other documents in connection with proceedings in any court by certified mail, return receipt requested, or by facsimile transmission, personal service, delivery by mail or in any other manner permitted by New York law or the law of the place of service, at the last address of the bidder or seller known to HELIOS.

15. EXPORT/IMPORT REQUIREMENTS. Certain property may require a license or certificate prior to exportation and/or importation. It is the purchaser's responsibility to obtain any export and/or import licenses and/or required documentation. HELIOS has no obligation to assist bidder in applying for or obtaining such documentation, export and/or import license, and will charge bidder additional fees for such services. We shall neither be obliged to rescind a sale nor to refund any interest or other expenses incurred by the buyer where payment is made by the buyer in circumstances where an export license is required.

In cases where HELIOS owns the property, the contract for sale is made between HELIOS and the buyer. The terms and conditions of sale shall bind the successors and assigns of all bidders and purchasers and inure to the benefit of HELIOS’ successors and assigns. No waiver, amendment or modification of the terms hereof (other than posted notices or oral announcements during the sale) shall bind HELIOS, unless specifically stated in writing and signed by HELIOS. If any part of these terms and conditions of sale is for any reason invalid or unenforceable, such portion shall be stricken and the rest of the terms and conditions of sale shall remain valid and enforceable.
