Late 18th Century Greek Ottoman Silver Yataghan,
A well above average silver hilted Ottoman yataghan, most likely
Greek, circa 1790.
An exceptionally fine silver with niello recess work hilted yataghan.
The 25 inch wootz type steel blade has engravings both sides, including
maker's mark. There is some slight damage or rather wear to the
silver work, but generally very good condition hilt. Complete with
scabbard. A beautiful piece for only £? (too late, now sold);
just search Google for these and fine one with such a quality hilt
and see what you have to pay elsewhere! Further / full sized pictures
available upon request. The item reference number is A75 (429).
