Well, I for one am very please to see the price it obtained particularly since I have an example with very similar hilt. Here is my example. Near identical in overall shape with differing koftgari motifs. I would place both examples in the 18th century and offer that it is a fairly rare handle style and would be of academic interest to the advanced and serious collectors.
