18Thc Indo Persian Damascus Tulwar For Sale


Recommended Posts

I am selling some pieces from my puratan shaster collection. i'm offering first option to fellow sikhs else they will go on ebay for plenty more. all of my shastars are authentic and originally purchased from european collectors.

unlike shasters i have seen on this site being sold that have clearly been married recently or tampered with, every shaster in my collection is in sleepy condition and battle-ready. all have correct patina, perfect balance, and even the koftgiri design confirming the age and location where forged as correct.

if you are interested in an 18thC Indo Persian Tulwar please message me your email address and i will email photos from my collection, this piece and its background.

thanks

many europeans stole artefacts from punjab in 18thC via the east india company. a lot of them ended up everywhere from hidden in mansions of private estates through to nailed on the walls of country pubs. ironically goray know more about our shastars than we do. there are regular arms fairs held in western countries, but even they are very well screened by westerners who pick off the best pieces offering HUGE amounts of money. my advice would be save up, buy 1/2 quality pieces from a recognised source rather than having a whole room full of tat. or, wait for apnay who have paid much higher prices in previous years to sell due to financial situation. unfortunately i'm in this category

i prefer pictures from my collection not be made public as its not a bragging competition. those who are messaging me have/are receiving full details & anyone is welcome to inspect the 1/2 pieces i do decide to sell first hand.
