Folk art layette pincushion, United States, 1766.
An 18th or 19th century Indian tulwar, robust hilt and blade of double-fullered European form, 68cm long. Together with an Afghan Khyber knife of typical form, but with faulty hilt, the t-section blade being 60cm long.
A nice side-by-side comparison of the two sword types. Tulwars had a quite a range on blade types, but still a nice representative example of a tulwar and a typical blade width.
An 18th or 19th century Indian tulwar sword with silver koftgari decoration to the hilt. Curved blade of good quality construction, 29 inches (74cm) long, with ‘eyelash’ engraving.

This very nice example of a wootz steel Indian tulwar, most probably made in the 18th century. The blade is in the style of a shamshir, and the sabre was confiscated from Indian soldiers fleeing to Nepal after the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
