Accurate miniature version of a typical Luristan dagger with double-eared pommel, long grip and lanceolate blade. The small scale is rare and points to a votive or ceremonial function of the item.
The flared pommel is reminiscent of the socket of older weapons made of bone.
Luristan, ca. 1000 BC
H. 7.2 cm (2.8 in)
Intact and of pristine quality. Attractive olive-green patina.
