A scarce and early North African 19th Century Flyssa Sword and Dagger. These very distinctive swords are particularly associated with tribes in Algeria and comprises a long steel blade inlaid with brass inserts. The spine of the blade is also deeply inlaid with brass decoration. The hilt has an animal-head brass pommel with inlaid brass motifs to the grip. The blade has a slightly curved, yataghan-type profile.
Complete with matching dagger
The sword also comes complete with a matching brass and steel-bladed dagger. Condition of both sword and dagger is good for its age, with some consequent wear to both pieces that is usually found with these antique Flyssas. Blade length for the sword is 29 inches (33.5 inches overall) and the dimensions of the dagger has a blade length of 10 inches (15 inches overall).
