A nice Chinese straight sword, Jian from the very early 20th century.
The sword within the scabbard is 102cms long, out it is 95cms long with a 74cm blade. The blade does show laminations in places below the high shine blade, it also exhibits an inserted edge and has complete seven star inlays. The guard is in the form of Yazi, the grip is complete with mulberry paper intact beneath the wrapping. The lobed pommel tapers nicely and ends in a brass spacer with seven points through which the tang is secured.
Attached to the hilt is a red wool and flannel tassel of 55cms.
The scabbard has three brass fitting to it painted yellow, the timber is covered in a thick black lacquer.
A nice example of a hard to find sword.
