Title Sukhela with 16th century Venetian blade
Nationality Indian
Period c 1800
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

An unmarked blade, probably from Belluno, typical of the type that would have been carried in a clam shell hilt sword. These blades were exported via Goa to the Indian sub-continent and would have mounted up in their own hilts through succeeding centuries.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
