19C Silver & Finely Carved Ivory Mounted
Burmese Dha-lwe, sold
A fine ivory and silver mounted 19th Century Burmese dha, in good
to very good condition.
One of the better examples of a Dha-lwe; the ivory grip very well
carved yet clearly as a sword grip, not an ornament.
The 56cm blade with talismanic circle of life markings is well
made and firm in the grip. The carved ivory grip is in very good
shape. The fittings appear to be pure silver as they have a clear
silver tarnish. The scabbard in good order. The sword sheathes and
A lovely example. Please quote item reference J39 (1125). Additional
/ full sized photos available upon request.
