Ancient Saddle Hilt Iron Blade Sword Iran

Here we have an incredible example of an ancient iron sword from Northern Iran, possibly Amlash, circa 900 BCE. It has a saddle-shaped pommel with extensive geometric decor on the hilt. The iron blade, though deteriorated, is still intact. The slender and elegant weapon has survived millennia just to be in your collection. There is a crack near the guard area visible in the photos. This fragile and beautiful piece measures 60.5 cm in length in its current condition. There are no visible repairs or restorations. This particular piece is from the collection of the late John Piscopo. Please contact me if you have any questions or need additional photos. Don't let this rare antiquity slip away.
