Assumed German, fruit wood stock with inlay.
Note the small loop on the front of bow, this was for a metal rod on the end of your boot. You also wore a heavy leather belt with two hooks on it.

You caught the cord on the two hooks on your belt then using your foot hooked the loop and then pushed down to rest and charge your crossbow. Fine as long as you were sober!
