Default Crested "Drooping" hilt

Hi,

The shape of the hilt, with a crested "drooping" pommel (also known as a "hooked" pommel) suggests southern Iraq, possibly originating with the Marsh Arabs ("Arab al-Ahwār"). However, the size is very large compared to other examples I've seen.

Very elegant. I look forward to learning more.
