Fine 18C Persian Shamshir Watered Damascus
A fine circa 1750 Persian Shamshir with excellent watered Damascus
blade, signed and dated.
We believe the date is for (Western calendar) 1753, but are not
100%; it is mid 18th Century though for sure. The blade has an exceptional
watered Damascus pattern to it. This is a very fine Persian Shamshir
The 33 1/2 inch very curved blade is in great condition for its
age, with the maker / date inscription and Bedouh talisman still
very clear, as is the superb watered damascened pattern (a little
more pronounced one side than the other). Blade firm in hilt. The
hilt and wooden grip with wear and age.
A superb example for just £(sales pricing available for
small fee). Please quote item reference number O35 (1358). Full
sized / additional photos available upon request.
