19C Ottoman Zeibek T shaped pommel Yataghan,
In aged though sound / good condition, a rare 19C Ottoman Smyrna
/ Ionian Coast Zeibek T shaped pommel Yataghan.
A rare Zeibek T shaped pommel Ottoman Yataghan. The blade has some
traces of red and a lot of engraving (with some gold remaining).
The hilt has been crudely repaired and then either painted or other
coating / mastic applied. We suspect the repair is glue and probably
be fairly easily improved.
The 73 cm blade is generally good, though only a little gold embossing
remaining. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt with repairs.
These are such rare swords and generally cost high hundreds or
thousands. Not here! Just £? (too late, now sold). Please
