A lovely late 18th century Indian Sabre from the North Western regions of India.
This nice and unusual example measures in a straight line 81cms with a blade of 70cms. The blade is hollow ground and of native Indian manufacture, has a good edge and a very nice watered steel blade.
The hilt shows clear remains of full silver overlay, something that would have looked very striking in its day. Unusual quillons and a pierced langet, a very unusual double knuckle guard ending in finials. The disc pommel is large and chiseled.
A wonderful sword in the hand and a very capable fighter of nice proportions.
Worthy of further research.
