Fechtschule der Federfechter…
This small copperplate was engraved by “VS”… Virgil Solis (1514-1562), a Nuremberg engraver. It depicts a Fechtschule, possibly of the Federfechter. (That guild had a winged griffin as their symbolic animal, whereas the competition, the Marksbrüder had the Winged Lion, the symbolic animal of St. Mark, from whom the Markus-Brüder derived their name.) Again, we see some of the basic tools of the trade—Dussacken, halberd, and two-handed sword.
How do we know it’s a Fechtschule proper, not a fencing school in the laster sense? Well, for one there is the director with his staff on the right. And from the cross-bar of the Bidenhänder to the left hangs the trophy the men are competing for: The Kränzlein (lit.: “little wreath”).
There is at last one other engraving by Solis depicting a similar scene.
ADDITION: I just stumbled upon this 1901 German dissertation by Alfred Schaer, entitled Die altdeutschen Fechter und Spielleute, which some of you might find interesting.
