Full Description:

A rare Mughal kard dagger with a tapering, watered steel blade, and fixed with green jade grip-scales, each delicately carved with three flowers whose centers show Burmese rubies held by gold kundan settings. The pommel is set with a further two matching rubies and a gold tag used for attaching a textile decoration or lanyard. The grip strap has been decorated with gold to show an organic floral design that continues along the spine, the meandering stems mirroring the flowing pattern visible in the high quality wootz blade.
