Turkish Sword Yatagan, 18th-19th century

Antique 18th-19th century Turkish Ottoman Sword Yatagan-Yataghan of characteristic ear shaped hilt made of two large pieces of walrus ivory mounted in gold gilded metal decorated in a typical Balkan raised knobbed design and applied with raised settings of fluted almond-shaped corals and two round green glass stones on the ricasso. The recurved single edged blade with a narrow fuller is ornamented with silver inlaid Arabic calligraphy and foliage, in its original leather covered wooden scabbard with brass fittings retaining its original tassel. The Yatagan was the favourite sword of the Janissaries and was also very popular in many Balkan states and some Eastern European countries such as Ukraine and Hungary.
CONDITION: cracks in the hilt with old repair.
MEASUREMENTS: The overall length with the scabbard: 71.7cm (28 1/4 in).
