Original Indian 19th Century Tulwar Battle Sword with Serrated Blade - Circa 1830
Original Item. Only One Available. Measuring 34" inches overall with a 29" SERRATED blade. Cut with teeth on top and bottom 7" toward the point and a further 12" at the upper rear. Designed to do terrible damage upon any enemy these swords were in wide use all over India from the very late 17th Century up until the end of the reign of Queen Victoria in 1901. Before the adoption of the circular disc hilted Tulwar swords the Indians used what we call "FIRANGI" swords mostly using European blades supplied as "used" surplus by the Portuguese traders in Goa.
This very unusual SERRATED blade Tulwar almost certainly was captured in the Great Sepoy Rebellion and taken to England as a Regimental War Souvenir. With the amalgamation of so many Regiments in the British Army since WW2 many military museums have been closed down and disbanded. Certainly one of the very much more interesting Tulwar Swords to have become available to collectors.
This example is in great shape, most attractive and ready to display.
