Lot 49: Exceptional Turkish Yataghan

Exceptional Turkish Yataghan, the short-sword with characteristic brass flaring pommel, the grip and pommel with inset carnelian, the blade with some oxidation with remains of a gilded inscription to one side (illegible) and a seal of Suliman to the other. The Scabbard with elaborate basket-woven brass locket with attached florets, the body with foliate patterns terminating in a shape in the form of a fish, 28" long sword, could use a good cleaning, but a superb example. Probably late 18th-early 19th C.

Price Realized: $1,000
