All I can add to this is the metal work method. The gold is not inlay but an old process of mercury gilding. At one time whole sections of the hilt had a layer of gold but had been worn off, like...

I want to guess by the filigree and (especially the 2nd one) by the scabbard shape that these are from Yemen.

Very nice.

Very nice Marius. Thank you for posting real examples from this museum. As JeffS said, there is a flood of tourist examples. We need all the real examples we can find and post for future reference.

I would guess Philippines or Indonesia. If Philippines, then they come from the Igorot tribes in the north. These are boar's tusks.
