A very fine and expertly decorated Vietnamese Guom.

This extremely nice example measures just over 92cms in the scabbard, 83cms out with a blade length of 64cms.
This sabre is both single or two handed, is solid and free from any movement in the guard as is common on these swords.
The exotic mother of pearl inlay on the rosewood scabbard is some of the finest I have seen. The silver work is very good condition and in bright polish, however the tonkou to the base of the blade is now missing.
The dark fullered blade is untouched except for a light coating of oil.
The guard is silver over copper with a decorative silver grip collar and a deeply repousse pommel in the form of a lion's head.
The grip is solid ivory with a lightly carved spine.

An exceptional Vietnamese sword in outstanding condition, being the near twin of stock number s467 currently shown in the Sold page.
