MX1513

A fine Persian Bronze Dagger, ca. 8th-7th century B.C.

This well-balanced weapon features a slender round hilt with central grip joining to a capped pommel. A rectangular guard carefully designed with crescentic horns extends down to firmly grip the upper end of the narrow, double-edged blade.  The blade, with raised blood ridge, tapers regularly with almost straight cutting edges to a point, making it most suitable for thrusting and cutting.  

Condition:  Intact, signs of usage as evidenced by the mild roughness to both blade edges, with fine, deep blue-green patina and overall excellent surface condition.  Museum quality custom mount.  A very fine example.

Dimensions:  Length: 9 7/8 inches (25.08 cm)

Provenance:  The Sheldon and Barbara Breitbart Collection of Antiquities and Ancient Glass, ex. Christies, NYC, Sale 8206 (1992), lot 187.
