19th / 20th Century Algerian Flyssa

Sales enquiries

Virtually every flyssa was made in Algeria, but used throughout North Africa. This is a nice example, not least as it comes with its original sheath / scabbard, which is rare due to the fragility of the same.

The 20 1/2 inch blade is generally very good but with some patina here and there. Blade firm in the hilt / grip. The head / pommel has damage and a glue repair, but is quite good. The wooden scabbard is actually very good for its age, but has a few worm holes and the two halves have some separation. The sword sheathes and draws well.

What a great example and just £300! Please quote item reference P33. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0257-0.8m (0.932).
