18- Indo-Persian 18th century Tulwar Hilted sword with captured/imported French cavalry blade which is signed to the back ( Manuf ? R au Le klingenthiel juin1828 S.A ?) Curved cavalry blade measures 25 inches / 65 cm. Very pronounced pointed tip which looks to be re-inforced for piercing chainmail. Sharp false edge at the tip of approx. 3 inches / 7 cm. Heavy Tulwar handle looks to be probably 18th century with nicely shaped langets to either side which have 4 dots decorations. One langet has some damage with a central crack and a crack to the side. The knuckle bar is semi-hinged so you can move your fingers comfortably and the base of the knuckle bow backward turns and terminates in a bud-shaped finial. The handle still shows signs of silver decoration (now worn in places). Overall length is 30 inches / 78 cm.
