19th century, all steel with finely shaped grip decorated front and back with silver koftgari in geometric and foliate motifs. The front with inscription panel. Iron scabbard with decoration en suite including star and crescent. The field including the grip edges, of both in lustrous brown turned from blue over time. 8” d.e. blade silver decorated in stylized tree motif matching the scabbard back and retaining much original bright blue, the balance faded to brown with some surface oxidation speckles along the edges. Good large example in exceptional preservation.
