It was found that the handle was broken in two parts, the beak was missing and the silver ferrule was also in a very bad state.

The handle byself is restored already, next step will be the restauration of the ferrule.

I will update this thread when the restauration is completed. A great compliment to the restorer who has done until now an outstanding job by this piece.

Great job Detlef! I bet it took some patience with that rattan.

I know these scabbards are not as old, but it's hard not to love the great carving typically seen on them.

Hello Charles,

yes, I agree, the restorer has done a grat job. And who have ever tried to straighten such a rattan binding will know how difficult this is and how much patience it need. And I agree with you, this carvings are really nice.

Regards,
Detlef

That ferrule will be a challenge; it's silver isn't it?
It looks like it might end up as much solder as silver when it's finally done.
