Lot 1425 - A198 Arms & Armour - Thursday, 30. September 2021, 05.00 PM
The name "Lucerne hammer" was created around 1850/60 by the Lucerne collector J. Meyer-Bielmann and found its way into the technical literature in 1869. The weapon is traceable as a "murder axe" in Lucerne inventories at the end of the 16th/17th century. Due to the lack of original weapons, good replicas were made in Lucerne in considerable numbers for collectors and tourists as "souvenirs".
