Nice Old Antique 19th Century Indian Shield With Figures And Animals No Sword:
Being offered is a nice old antique steel shield from India that would date to the 19th century. This is a good sized shield measuring 18 1/4” in diameter. The shield has 4 steel boss with decorative trim. The shield is covered in a hunting scene. You have pictures of elephants and then hunters with spears and other weapons. The figures were covered in silver koftgari at one time. The scene is somewhat faded because of the patina to the shield. A very light cleaning would greatly improve both the visibility of the figure along with better highlighting the silver contrast. The reverse has an old green velvet pad. A nice old shield.
