Nice lantaka. Thanks for sharing.
How about the cannon stand? Did it come originally with the lantaka?
Can you post photos of the stand?

Very nice! I love that pierced carving on the hilt.

What characteristics points this blade as being Persian? Is it the style of the cartouche?

Thanks for sharing.

Tulwar....?

This Tulwar(?), was offered to me in exchange for another sword.
Although it's not really what I collect, it was too nice for me to pass up.
So is it a Tulwar or does it go by another name?

Nice collection of wooden hats.
The one with the brim looks like a bowler hat, similar to what Curly from the 3 Stooges would wear.

I believe the one with the silver finial is Moro.
