FLEMISH/MILITARY ARBALIST BOW
This bow dates from the fifteenth through seventeenth centuries. It is flat-sided and rectangular in cross section. These bows saw use all over Europe, and were often very powerful.A slightly larger version of this bow was used in warfare from approximately 1370 to about 1490, eventually replaced by firearms. This bow is illustrated in Payne-Gallwey’s ‘Book of the Crossbow’, Figs. 45, 46 and 72.
Bow irons and medieval lockplates make this bow quite authentic.
