Characteristic form, see Stone fig.661. Chiseled iron hilt with drooping stylized monster head quillon terminals, with brown oxidation texture overall. Arabesque terminal langets. Swelled grip and scalloped edge cup form pommel with flat top plate. 30 ¾” curved wedge section blade with narrow back fuller, double medium fullers and false edge. The blade is smooth with light gray patina, some isolated raised oxidation and possibly watered steel construction.  The vast majority of Indopersian swords on the market came from the arsenal dispersal of the early 1980s, following the disenfranchisement of the majaharas and are in deteriorated and overcleaned condition. This example is representative of swords collected in the 18th-century wars and returned to England as military trophies.
