Silver Mounted Arab / Yemenite Saif
Date: Late 19 - early 20C.
Saif from Yemen with European trade blade, probably German. Multi-fullered blade with engraved design of sun and stars (Now partially worn). Chased silver handle with a pommel reminding in a way the pommel of a Karabella sword and silver cross guard. Chased whole silve scabbard with two double rings hanging bands..
Blade 31 1/2 inches (90 cm). Total length 41 inches (104 cm). Very good condition. Lightly re-shaped blade tip.
Sometimes it is hard to tell Yemenite sword from other Arab saif swords. However, the pommel shape and the chasing style support the Yemenite origin of this sword.
Authentic and Late 19 – early 20 C. sword
