Antique 18-19th C. Serbian Turkish Balkan Yataghan Sword No Shamshir Kilich Dirk:
A quite rare style of yataghan. This example is mounted entirely in metal and German silver with small red coral stones inset into the handle. The blade is in overall very fine condition and is inlaid, not overlaid, with silver including several inscriptions and an early date of the late 18th C. The blade is likely earlier and was mounted in the 19th C in the Balkan region, possibly in Bosnia, Albania, or most likely Serbia judging by the style of the handle, which has some later solder, but this can be cleaned off.
Overall length is 27", blade is 20
