German term or phrase: Punktknäufe, Parierstangen
Any antiques freaks out there? This part of the text (relating to a Meissen pot) talks about the sword mark on the jug: "Unterglasurblaue Schwertermarke mit Punktknäufen an der Unterschale, Schwertermarke mit großen Parierstangen unter dem Topf..." I know that "Knäufe" means "pommel" - but "Punktknäufe"..? I know that "pairieren" is "to parry", but what are the "Parierstangen"?? Any help appreciated!

Explanation:
This is describing the vesion of the Meissen trademark found on the antiqu (of crucial importance, as the age of the piece can be determined that way). Punktknäufe, I believe, refers to the version used in the 1760's with dots at the base of each sable hilt. Parierstange, I believe is parrying foil, but I would doublecheck that at one of the two links below. The first one, espaecially, will show you what you're writing about. HTH, Will
