18/19C Indo-Persian Marathi Dandpatta Patta
Sword Glove, Sold
In good overall condition, a scarce 18th / 19th Century Indo-Persian
Marathi Dandpatta Patta Sword Glove. This item is now reserved under
our layaway program until 16th February 2018.
Possibly wootz steel construction blade has a fair number of old
maybe period nicks to both cutting edge. The length of the blade
suggests this Patta was made for mounted use.
The blade is an almighty 38 1/8 inches long; it has a damaged
(been bent and straightened) tip and multiple old nicks to the cutting
edges. Blade quite firm in the hilt (most are a little loose). The
brass gauntlet / glove hilt is in good condition, though has lost
a few of the small suspensions along the sides.
A very impressive example. Yours for £? (too late, now sold).
Please quote item reference AC54 (0302). Further / full sized images
available upon request.
