18th C. Ottoman Turkish Sword with Kirk Narduban Wootz Damascus Saber Blade

( ID: is784 )

A magisterial example with a heavy, wide and deeply curved kirk narduban damascus blade of the finest quality. Inlaid with a maker mark now missing it's gold inlay, but heavily overlaid with gold koftgari inscriptions.  The crossguard is unusual in it's Persianate motifs and the blade features a short fuller at the ricasso which is an unusual smiths addition, rarely seen. 

Overall length 38".
