The sword, though possibly not a genuine article, appears to have Tulvar hilt...and a concocted blade which I cannot be sure is either of the Storta type or the Persian Quddera with peculiar Indian marks in the incised portraits.. which seem to be Indian deities...Whilst it could be some sort of religious item it equally could be a tourist home on the stage rather than in a serious collection perhaps.
