Pattern 5u - The Ulrich Bow   Period - 1460   Length - 28 inches


We are very pleased to offer a very correct (though less ornate) copy of a sporting crossbow made for Ulrich V, Count of Wurttemburg, circa 1460.

This pattern is taken from photos of the extant bow and photos of a very similar bow in the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. We offer the stock in cherry or walnut (walnut is pictured).
