    ~ Late 19th Century Silver And Koftgari Gold Islamic Dagger (Hanger) ~


    This is a late 19th century Islamic dagger.

    Its fittings are of silver and the blade is decorated with gold koftgari inlays.

    The decorations on the blade depict sand dunes and the sun shining above suggesting, due to the successive appearance of the sun, a trade route through the sands. The sand is depicted through a gold inlay with footsteps on it.

    The silver & copper copper hand guard bears a number of silver marks.

    The pommel is serial numbered in two places ‘1602’ and bears two other silver marks.

    Both the pommel and the grip collar are decorated with floral embossing.

    The grip is made of horn, probably goat.

    A great quality example.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade length is 11 inches (28 cm) and the overall length of the dagger is 16 inches (40.7 cm).

    It weighs 215 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The dagger is in excellent condition for its age, free of rust or serious damage.

    On one side of the blade a part of the gold inlay is missing (approx 3 cm in length).

    Due to its age the hand guard lost some of its silver plate.

    There is no scabbard.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
