A very rare Lana style sword, repousse silver.

This Dhaab from Thailand measures 96.5cms long in its scabbard and would be longer had it not lost its pommel.
Out of its scabbard it is 94cms long with a blade length of 59cms.
The long hilt is repousse silver over a timber, likely solid bamboo core. The scabbard is also silver but silver sheet embellished at the ends with twisted silver wire decorations.
The blade is 8mm thick at the spine and tapers nicely through to he tip and the very sharp cutting edge.
Despite the loss of the pommel, a piece that can be reproduced by modern Thai silver smiths, this is a rare sword type.

A good example of 19th century Thai craftsmanship.
