In the Russian language there is an expression "hand washes a hand" (from the Latin expression "Manus manum lavat"). Its meaning is that friends will always praise each other ;)

chiefheadknocker, I think no one can say for sure whether your katar was made before 1857 (then it could be used for battle), or it was made in the late 19th century as an item for tourists.

Thank you, Kurt!

The collector, from whom I bought this shield, also said that it was the 18th century.
But I decided that it was made a little later.

Thank you!
