Some pre-1889 working dhas from Burma
In case anyone is interested. Not terribly high quality photo, I'm afraid; unfamiliar camera, dark museum, and they were mounted on a wall overhead in a stairway.
These are in the Pitt-Rivers Museum in Oxford. The label reads "Varieties of the Burmese da for various uses. Pres[ente]d by Capt. R.C. Temple R.E., 1889."
I have some shots of Naga daos and spears and some other Asian miscellany from the same museum, if anyone is interested.
