Weapons

The original core of the museum’s weapons collection came from the Ribeaupierre castle in Ribeauvillé. Seized during the French Revolution, these objects were held at the Unterlinden convent. Edmond Fleischhauer (1812–1896), who served as president of the Société Schongauer from 1885, made a number of major additions to this collection through his purchases, before his entire personal collection was bequeathed to the museum at his death in 1896. Beyond their technical and historical interest, some of these works are aesthetically significant, such as a remarkable ceremonial shield, decorated with genre scenes relating to the seasons, inspired by Flemish painting.
