A Mameluke Style Sword, 19th Century
Curved, single -tip and false-edged blade, of flat section; Oriental, iron quillon with langets and straight quillons ending in buttons, decorated with gold-inlaid floral motifs, the back of the grip decorated with gilt motifs, with anatomic, ivory grip scales with angled pommel. Wooden scabbard with leather covering, white metallic and brass mounts. Worked in Oriental style, with shamshir-like quillon.
The scabbard looks like something one might see in an Indian regiment. I wonder if this might possibly have belonged to a British or Indian officer?
