Seller: melrosetreasures (4,817) 100%, Location: Lancaster, California, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 143406977089 Ancient Luristan Bronze & Iron Sword w/ Double Ear Pommel & Unusual "V" - 22.5" Ancient Luristan Bronze & Iron Sword w/ Double Ear Pommel & Unusual "V" - 22.5" Click images to enlarge Description This item is from a chapter 7 bankruptcy estate which was handled by Abell auctions in Los Angeles. It is part of the same (Estate) collection which was sold through Live Auctioneers on Oct. 6th 2019. You can view the collection in their sold archive from this link; This short sword is breathtaking! As you can see, the condition is wonderful. The double ear pommel is in the form of wonderfully detailed horse hooves. The V in the hilt is on both sides and I could not find a single example of this in any weaponry of the period.If anyone out there could shed some light on it I would appreciate it! The hilt is magnetic while the blade and ear pommel are not. Tip to tip this piece measures a little over 22.5". I believe this sword to be quite rare given these unusual atributes and as far as I know, it hasn't been offered for sale before so this could be a great opportunity. I acquired it from a large and reputable auction house in Los Angeles and only know that it came from a wealthy private estate. I got several others which you can see in the last photo, all AUTHENTIC and all being sold separately so please have a look in our store. Please notice the large bronze spear head that looks like a dagger, with the white sediment (coral?) and small loop. This piece has me completely stumped. I have searched for hours and cannot find anything close to compare it to. It is very thick and heavy and the blade still has a bit of an edge. I rubbed the metal on my testing stone and it is a very light bronze color, almost like silver. I saw pieces that made me think it might be European Medieval and then saw Asian pieces which I think it could be either or but just haven't a clue and would appreciate some ideas. Thanks in advance!
