Rare 16th C. Tatar-Ottoman Wootz Kilich Shamshir

( ID: i276 )
A very rare 16th C. Ottoman sword. This is an example of an early Ottoman kilich, with a fine wootz kilich style blade with a slender yelman and gentle curve. These kinds of blades date these kilichs to the 16th-17th centures. The style of the scabbard fittings are also indicative of the age and also the origin as well. The top scabbard fitting retains some of the original niello work which can be seen on similar swords from this era. The handle style is also indicative of a Tatar origin mixed with some Ottoman motifs in the inlaid silver along the silver strip running along the middle of the handle. The scabbard leather has been restored over the years. A very fine and rare example with the original scabbard. Overall length is 36", blade is 30", 1 3/8" wide at the yelman and 1 1/8" wide at the ricasso,
