A plain yet well made tulwar dating to the early 19th century. The hilt, likely made in Punjab, is larger than the average Indo-Persian sword hilt, made for a bigger hand, with delightful filework and the remains of a silver wash.
The lightly curving pattern welded blade is in good condition with some areas showing a nice contrasting weld. The blade also has a stamp on the ricasso of the maker. There is a restored scabbard with this piece, the wooden core has been painted and the steel fittings have been silver plated. This sword can be yours for £350 or best offer.
