Pieces such as this rarely get posted on my site for sale due to the extreme rarity and high demand for quality antiquities. This authentic ancient bronze sword dates to the Warring States period of ancient China (circa 450 BCE) and was found in the Anhui provence. There are remnants of high tin content decorations on the blade surface. The pommel also has liner decorations as part of the casting. This amazing weapon shows no signs of repair or restoration and is in good condition considering its age and origin. I will be happy to answer any questions and/or provide additional pictures. Authenticity is guaranteed on all of our ancient bronze so you can buy with confidence.
