Sold Item Notice

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 draws well.

A lovely example. Please quote item reference J39 (1125). Additional / full sized photos available upon request.
