Child’s hunting crossbow, 1600. Unknown artist. Germany.

Crossbow makers were affiliated as a separate group of craftsmen, ‘the Crossbowmen.‘ By the 16th century the great craft centres such as Nuremberg and Augsburg in southern Germany were producing crossbows with elaborate carving and inlaid, engraved staghorn. The combination of steel bow, often beautifully etched with mythological or biblical designs and the wooden stock brought together the armourer and the furniture maker for the same productions. V&A
