A very high quality Arab Jambiya dagger from Saudi Arabia.

This Jambiya measures 31cms tall in its sheath.
The body and sheath covered wholly to the front in exquisite filigree and applied silver decoration, the hilt of darkened timber that closely resembles Rhino horn which is applied with silver.
To the lower part of the sheath at the tip on the back there is an embossed panel of Arabic calligraphy, the front with floral motifs. The script to the rear reads "Amal Ahmed bin Mursi" work of Ahmed bin Mursi.
The blade is of good steel, deeply curved and with a thick strengthening ridge along the middle. Old glued repair to wood crack on the hilt is hardly noticed.

A very fine complete type with belt, mid 20th century.
