Seller: kteaco (3,023) 100% Top-Rated Plus, Location: Center Line, Michigan, Ships to: US, Item: 272438070553 Ancient Chinese Bronze Sword With Gold Inlay Large Heavy 26 Inch 2 Pounds 10 Oz FREE SHIPPING! This sword was acquired many years ago from and old Chinese man. He believed it was from the Shang Dynasty about 3,000 years old. I have had a few people look at it and they could not date the sword or region. Not sure if the gold is inlaid or a wash or what. I am selling it for what I have into it. I have taken some pictures with close ups of the characters on the sword. The Shang dynasty (Chinese: 商朝; pinyin: Shāng cháo) or Yin dynasty (Chinese: 殷代; pinyin: Yīn dài), according to traditional historiography, ruled in the Yellow River valley in the second millennium BC, succeeding the Xia dynasty and followed by the Zhou dynasty. The classic account of the Shang comes from texts such as the Book of Documents, Bamboo Annals and Records of the Grand Historian. According to the traditional chronology based on calculations made approximately 2,000 years ago by Liu Xin, the Shang ruled from 1766 to 1122 BC, but according to the chronology based upon the "current text" of Bamboo Annals, they ruled from 1556 to 1046 BC. The Xia–Shang–Zhou Chronology Project dated them from c. 1600 to 1046 BC. Courtesy of Wikipedia The blade is not sharp but blunt as shown. There is some corrosion that is shown in the pictures. The pictures describe the sword. I have looked for similar items on the internet and couldn't find any. If anyone knows anything about this sword I would greatly appreciate it. This will be shipped with insurance well packed in a USPS Hard Box Priority Mail for fast safe arrival to you. FREE SHIPPING & Insurance! Thank you!
