A rare opportunity to obtain a very fine original gold hilted Tulwar with minimal wear and its blade in its original bright polish with only very minor light localised staining. The hilt remains in exceptional condition throughout with only minor age wear.

The sword measures 91cms long in its scabbard. Out it is 89cms long with a blade length of 77cms.
The floral gold work is of a very high quality and is raised well above the steel hilt. All the gold work is also engraved and where most flowers are concerned, it is double layered in gold and engraved.

The hilt is complete with its articulated lanyard ring.
The blade is rare in that it remains it its original bright polish, much akin to the way Japanese Katana are presented and the blade seen on the blue scabbard Central Asian/Sindh sabre s222 in the Gallery page.
The bright polish is further enhanced by thin frosted strip on the blade that sits just in front of the langet. This strip shows polished diagonal lines with groups of the same lines present within the polished surface under the langet.
The scabbard is original to the sword but is worn with age, wear that has protected this fine investment quality sword.
The base of the scabbard retains its original pierced and gold applied fitting with floral motifs being those that are seen on the hilt.

A very fine, complete example in a very rare original condition.
