My new Dahl Shield
I got this Indian Dahl shield with the Sudanese shield I put up last week.(seeing as we seem to have lot of shield discussion going on at the moment I taught I would put it up)
Large enough 58cm diameter in good enough condition but lacking all the paint off the shield
Nice bosses with green glass (or emeralds ;-)) in the tips, handle intact with all points in contact and v sturdy chain going through the hand loops, red velvet in good condition
5th decorative boss at the top of the shield
I am not going to do any cleaning, (it is dirty from abuse and its unloved recent past) just putting up here to show and also does anyone have any idea of age of this shield and what animal the hide might be from.
I took one picture with desk light behind to see if this would indicate any particular animal.
Comments much appreciated
Regards to all
No words... I'm speechless
Plus it was gilded
very similar to this one (not mine unfortunately)
top top dhal congrats
Thanks Kubur for your kind words
I did not think it was anything special other than a Dahl, I actually prefer the Sudanese shield I posted earlier.
I did think it was particularly large though
What would make this special especially in the condition it is in at the moment?
I understand it was nice once but alas age has taken its toll.
really nice !!
I've got this one with six bosses, certainly indian
