19C / 20C Silver & Ivory Burmese Dha,
In very good condition, a very high quality late 19th Century
/ early 20th Century Silver & Ivory Burmese Dha.
A very high quality Burmese dha with very high silver content (92%+)
- see silver acid test result further below (blood red indicates
over 92% silver content).
The 18 3/16 inch steel blade is in very good condition and firm
in the hilt. The silver sheet (over wood) and ivory hilt is very
good, some age hairline cracks to the ivory. The silver sheet over
wood scabbard is equally good. Animal / hunting scenes are well
engraved to hilt and scabbard. The dha sheathes and draws well.
An exceptional example. These sell for $2000+ on specialist sites,
but this one can be yours for just £1000. Please quote item
