Outstanding 19th C. Gilded Silver with Niello Caucasian Persian Kard in perfect condition
|( ID: rd741 )|
Nearly perfect condition 19th C. Caucasian kard. This example has the finest carved, gilded and nielloed silver scabbard I've ever encountered on one of these types of kards. Condition is 99% with no loss of gilding or niello and the chasing is of the finest quality. The kard dagger is original and has horn grips and a sham wootz blade of slender and long proportions to fit the scabbard.
Overall length is 17", blade is 10". The scabbard alone must weight nearly 2lbs.
