Nice old sword from the Padang highlands
The wooden hilt with protruding tongue in simple style.
The blade shows a very nice antique patina and has some engraved motifs on both sides.
The original scabbard even has the original chain to lock the sword into postion.
This is the first I have in years complete with original scabbard.
Sumatra, Payakumbuh area.
Mid 19th century
Size total: 54 cm
Blade: 38 cm.
