18C / 19C Indo-Marathi Pata Gauntlet Sword,
In overall very good condition, an 18C / 19C Indo-Marathi Pata
With faux Passau Running Wolf and orb with cross European markings
to blade (European blades were highly regarded in India, which is
ironic as the Indians often actually made better grade blades).
The 34 3/4 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt
(only very slight movement which is very form for one of these swords
as they do not have the tang in a solid hilt / grip like normal
swords). The hilt is in very good condition. This 18C / 19C Indo-Marathi
Pata Gauntlet Sword is 48 inches long overall.
This is a great example, truly. Yours for £? (too late, now
sold). Please quote item reference AC55 (0308). Further / full sized
photos available upon request.
