Antique Thai Swords

Exceptionally fine and rare pair of Northern Thai swords circa late 19th- early 20th CE. The dha (long sword) is L: 110cm/43.2in, the blade is 70cm/27.5in, and the short sword is L: 62cm/24.4in, the blade L: 36cm/ Both have silver pommels, rattan bindings and wood handles and scabbards. The dha has a beveled spine and is 8mm at the forte, the short sword has a rounded spine is 11mm at the forte, both blades are near as sharp as razors and of good quality steel. For comparison I have included a normal sized old Lanna dha in the 2nd enlargement. The long sword was used possibly for ceremonial purposes or made for a very tall Thai. These are the best quality swords from this region I have yet encountered.
