Fine quality silver hilt with a tiger-like monster head pommel. The back with a mane of tight curls in the Buddhist dragon style. D shape guard with double side guards inspired by 18th-century British naval swords. 23” broad. Broad fullered blade of lineal pamir iron, decorated with sunburst, stars, and inscription each side (somewhat weak) and with isolated pock marks pitting to the bottom toward the point.
