Fantastic 19th C. Udaipur style Indian tegha tulwar sword

( ID: is683 )

A truly fantastic antique 19th C. example with a beautiful gold koftgari handle with matching scabbard mounts. The inside of the pommel shows a chiseled off space which is where there would have been a Devangari inscription. Likely the sword was picked up by a Muslim warrior who was offended by the Hindu script and inscription.  Otherwise the sword is in excellent condition with nearly no koftgari lossses.  The large heavy tegha style blade is a work of the smith's art made with an excellent damascus pattern highly visible throughout and with a maker marks at the forte filled in with red wax.

Overall - 34"

Blade- 28"

Blade width - 1.5"

 

Just an excellent and very beautiful tegha.
