A rare and interesting bronze short sword, Western Asia, Caspian Sea Region, likely Talish, ca. 1000 BC.

A finely made blade with a thick central rib, and a handle ending in a crescent shaped guard. The top of the handle is a short flat tang that would have held a top-piece made of bone or wood.

Size: 33,5 cm., would have been perhaps 38-40 cm. with the original handle preserved.

Condition: Choice!, green patina. An attractive piece, ready for display.

Ex. Johan Dæhnfeldt Estate Collection (2013).
