FINE, Massive Old Antique Persian Shamshir Sword w/Arab or Indian Mounts /dagger. Here is a magnificent and MASSIVE Persian made shamshir sword from the 18th or early 19th century in a tooled leather scabbard with silver mounts that look to be Indian or Arab work. The huge sword is 41in. Overall with a blade of 34.5in.
The blade is from fine Persian high contrast wootz and features a cartouche at the forte. The blade has one wide fuller with smaller, narrow, fullers just above it. The blade's wootz pattern remains consistent throughout with no pitting and just a couple of tiny dark spots. The hilt features a wootz steel guard in classic Persian form.
The grip is from carved and shaved stag horn scales mounted with flower rosette silver rivets, with a plain steel strap and pommel. There is some wear to scabbard's tooled leather with a couple of small spots of leather missing and the blade having cut through only between the top and middle baldric mount.
