19th Century Indian Tulwar / Talwar, For
In aged condition, a 19th Century Indian Tulwar / Talwar.
Actually a once very nice tulwar / talwar with the remnants of
a finely etched / koftgari hilt, and a fine sharp blade, but with
some fairly deep though now inert rust patches.
The 28 1/2" blade is sound but has a few larger inert rust
patches. Blade firm in hilt which has remnants of once fine bronze
appearance koftgari work. The sheath is aged but sound. The sword
sheathes and draws well but the back edge exits the sheath towards
the tip end.
