ULRICH BOW

Probably the earliest dated crossbow––as well as one of the most beautiful examples of its kind––to survive from the 15th century, it is also the only crossbow of its period whose maker can be identified with reasonable certainty. The elaborate decoration consists of ivory panels carved with figures, inscriptions, and the arms of Count Ulrich V of Württemberg (1413–1480) and his third wife, Margaret of Savoy (1420–1479). The Latin inscriptions on either side are a hymn to the Virgin Mary and a Christmas-related quote from the gospel of St. Luke (2:14). On the underside, the crossbow features an extremely rare German inscription rendered in Hebrew letters––one of the earliest recorded instance of its kind.
