What an odd piece! One of the gods pictured looks like Durga (the other I have never seen before).

Yet the moon on the blade is European in origin, which is not unusual in that European blades were seen as exotic by the Indians at the time.

A modified European blade no doubt, but is this whole thing original as a whole? - I'll let others answer that.
