Hi Ron,

Dealers call them Indo-Persian when they are unable to say if they are Persians or Indians. In fact they are Persians OR Indians. Nevertheless to add to the confusion, since the 16th c. Mughals had Persian artists working for them. Many objects were produced in Northern India with an Iranian/Persian style.
But for your shield there is nothing Indian in it and it has to be Persian.
