RARE 19th C. Chinese Qing Dynasty Niuweidao Sword with beautiful Islamic influenced blade and carved dragon tunkou

( ID: ia645 )

A truly exemplary 19th C. Chinese niuweidao. This is one of the finest examples of these types of sword, I've seen on the market and features an extremely interesting multi-fullered blade with a chiseled and gilded brass tunkou formed in the shape of a dragon.

A wonderful sword. Very large length and very finely crafted blade with an excellent balance in hand.

 

Overall length is 40", blade is 32", 3/8" thick at the ricasso.
