VERY ATTRACTIVE BRONZE SWORD WITH ENAMEL PATINA AND A VERY BROAD BLADE, WESTERN ASIA, CA. 1000-600 BC.

Interesting sword, possibly Luristani, or made further North in the Caspian Sea Region. The sword very unusual with it's broad blade with three broad ribs that tapers towards a sharp point. The handle made to take inlays of bone or stone now lost. Perhaps the single most attractive and finely preserved sword in the Dæhnfeldt Collection.

Size: ca. 43 cm. long and with the blade nearly 6 cm. broad at it's widest point!.

Condition: Museum Quality, really. Exceptional metal quality and applegreen patina.

Ex. Johan Dæhnfeldt Estate Collection (2013)..
