Seller: randall3563 (890) 100%, Location: Auburn, California, Ships to: US, Item: 202653245716 Medes Culture Circa 1000 BC 62cm Long 3 lbs Top notch ancient Persian bronze sword with a beautiful Open-work, Oval-sectioned hilt surmounted by a double lions heads pommel with open jaws, deeply incised details and a rounded guard. The beautifully shaped long blade as well as the double mid-ribs on each side of the blade taper to a sharp point. A large high-relief Crescent stands out under the guard on both sides as well. This is an exceptional sword that was likely the property of a high ranking officer who may have used it for ceremonial purposes given the lack of battle scars. The difficult to produce Open-work of the hilt is outstanding. The blade is perfectly forged and the heavy pommel with the roaring lion heads is wonderful to hold and behold. The condition of the sword is Excellent. Lovely green patina covers the entire piece and it is supremely attractive. One side of the pommel has some noticeable oxidation that likely resulted from it being submerged in some sort of moisture filled medium like wet soil. This is a super, ancient double edged weapon that impresses everyone who comes in contact with it and holds it in their hands. -------------------------- California Sales Tax is charged on all sales made within or shipped within the State of California.
