Not on view

This example belongs to the same group of late nineteenth-century Turkish weapons as the tray of daggers with accession number 23.232.1. Common features of this group include: scabbards of gilt copper worked in relief with strapwork or arabesques and overlaid with jeweled filigreed settings; jade grips of Indian origin; and blades either chiseled in relief or pierced and damascened in gold with inscriptions and false early dates.
