Very Nice 19th C. Ottoman Turkish Army Officer's Shamshir Sword In Gilded Silver For Sale

Very Nice 19th C. Ottoman Turkish Army Officer's Shamshir Sword In Gilded Silver

Very nice and uncommon example of the Turkish military officer's shamshir in gold gilded silver mounts showing considerable wear to gold and having each fitting hallmarked, some twice including the two suspension rings, very uncommon to see that. Gold wash over silver, showing lovely original bluish black tarnish, it should not be touched to my taste but can be polished off to leave pure silver mounts, if new owner desires so. The gilding technique was a very complex and expensive process at the time, thus gilded silver mounts on swords and other weapons are rare and thought after by collectors, that's why even partially worn gold in my opinion adds tremendously to the value of a weapon. Wearing a slander quick and well balanced blade of damscus steel, some lovely flowing variation of Turkish Wootz or Sham steel, later inlaid with partially fallen out silver and gold dedications, inscriptions and date 1325 = 1907. Very Desirable h0rn grips in traditional style, having one small old repair on each side and small chips near the guard. Solid and overall intact, with small loses here and there to the original scabbard leather.
