Item:192745655959Being offered is a nice old antique African Cameroon grasslands sword with fine scabbard. This sword measures 28 1/2” in total length when measured in its scabbard. The handle is carved from a dark wood with a Janus pommel, two opposite facing heads with rings carved down the grip and the squarish guard with line carving. The heavily rusted blade with triple fullers to each side. It has seen extensive sharpening in its day. It sports two metal plugs. Talismanic in nature? The scabbard is really nicely done. It is covered in two different animal hairs, one a light brown and one a dark black. Designs have been cut out of the front of the scabbard so that the black hairs are inside the pattern and they create a nice contrast to the light hairs. The reverse with stitched leather and also covered in hair but most of the hair has worn off. Probably only about 30% of the hair remains on the back whereas about 90-95% remains on the front. Nice old African sword. Probably dates to the early to middle 20th century. Please e-mail with any questions.
