A good early Syrian Shamshir.

This old warrior measures 93cms tip to tip with an 81cm blade.
The grip slabs are horn with silver inlay. Partial grip strap missing as is the pommel cap. The guard and wire grip wrap has been painted black.
The heavy curved blade remains in very healthy condition and would benefit from a polish to bring out the beautiful patterns hidden beneath the patina. To one side of the blade is an unusual oval cartouche.
