Origin: Kubachi, Dagestan

Date: Very early 20C.

Dagestan is situated on the southern border of Russia, in the Caucasus mountains. The area is rich in silver which was mined since early Greek times, hence the art of silversmith was developed and perfected in Dagestan, especially in the small settlement of Kubachi. The region is famous for its silver work, specifically in the art of producing and decorating arms and armor

The Kindjal offered here is a very fine example for silver and niello work. Probably made in Kubachi, very early 20C. Classical blade with an off-centered deep fuller. Heavy silver handle and scabbard. Front face richly decorated with deeply chiseled and gilded, delicate floral design. The back face is beautifully decorated with dense niello work.

Blade 14 inches long. Total length 20 inches. Perfect, next to mint condition. Outstanding workmanship in silver
