Hi Rick,
Nice looking Pesh/Choora. I suspect by the look of it that the scabbard is much newer than the knife. Scabbards are usually decorated but this looks plain. Also is that machine stitching...

FN Fabrique Nationale

Well known for firearms manufacture, but I did not know that they also made cars and motorbikes!!
Came across this in a motor museum over the Christmas Vacation. Thought it might be of interest.

Yep Sounds good. Rather than bubble wrap what about a large diam cardboard or plastic tube and cover that with fabric. Seems to me you would need a large amount of bubble wrap to get to 36"!!

Hi Richard,

I notice that in the "Sale" pics there is another piece attached which is not now shown.
I agree with Richard but am not sure that the horizontal tube is for the pricker. There MUST be some sort of...

Hi Marcus,
I think that both the conical holders are for holding the match cord. The one on the left likely for holding the cord in place otherwise it would just fall off the gun. The other for...

The Southern Cross is only visible in the Southern Hemisphere. Ethiopia is in the Northern Hemisphere.

Since the cross is generally accepted as a Christian symbol, is it likely to be accepted as a decoration in the Muslim world?

Whilst Indian history is not my thing, Lord Egerton of Tatton, in his book Indian and Oriental Arms and Armour, splits the Military history of India into 4 broad parts.

Salaams Ibrahiim,
You do not give dimensions of the huge coffee pot in your pic above. I recently picked up this large pot in a local junk shop.
Size is 10" (25.5mm) to the top of the bowl and 14"...

I agree with KUBUR in as far as it probably being of Indian manufacture. The shape IMHO is more like Saudi. Likely for tourist market but the blade is nice.

Hi Harry, Yes, and yes the book is worth getting hold of if you can pick it up. A good reference book though unless you know what an item is called it can take time to find it.

Don't really think you can compare sizes from this illustration. It is a drawing, not a photograph and would not be to scale.

Very nice piece Harry. The OA description said quality silver dress but this looks quite dull. Is it just dirty/tarnished?

OK Thanks. Slight revision. You have a Moroccan Snaphaunce Musket but the other is an Afghan Jezail...not an Omani matchlock as I thought before.

I am not very familiar with these but would suggest that it is from Africa rather than Afghanistan. The blade looks a bit roughly made to be Afghani.
Nice job on the scabbard by the way.
