A nice and unusual Indian Shamshir with a dark wootz blade.
This example is a good restorable sword in restorable conditon.
Certainly the highlight of this Shamshir is the blade that has a dark high contrast Wootz pattern and gold derotation to the tip of the blade, quite Possibly hiding an unusual Wootz pattern at this point.
The hilt also retains a good amount of gold decoration to the surfaces.
Overall just under 86cms in a straight line and with a blade 73cms.
Uncleaned all over dark patina with a few very small areas of light pitting to the blade.
