Very Fine Gold & Silver Singhalese Piha Kaetta

Very Fine Gold & Silver Singhalese Piha Kaetta www.swordsantiqueweapons.com


A very fine Singhalese Piha Kaetta, 18th Century.
30cms overall, gold flowing forte with silver vines inlayed to the gold.
Exceptional condition, only a few very small losses to the fine silver panels on the blade.
Very finely carved hilt, translucent in places, possibly rhino horn.
The blade is 8mm thick with deep fullers inlayed in stylised fish, the spine is covered in silver panel with lotus flowers in a row.
the blade does show very faint silver coloured laminatons, a polish should reveal a lovely pattern, I am happy to do this if required by the new custodian.
