Ancient Greek Bronze Sword Blade

Description
Ancient Greek Bronze Sword Blade
Circa 1000-700 BC

A finely modelled Ancient Greek Trojan Circa 1000-700 BC, cast bronze dagger comprising a long, pointed blade with a prominent mid-rib. At the butt-end of the sword, the blade widens to form three distinct points, with the external two curing slightly outwards. The wooden pommel and hilt presumably would have fit onto the blade through these points. The blade is covered in a beautiful green patination.


Measurements: circa 43.5cm length

Private collector: Ex major London collection 1970-2010.
