Default My new talibon from Auctions Imperial

Hello,

like Steve I am also win something by Auctions Imperial, Timonioum. Since the prices for Visayan blades rise up enormously I have tried to get it more cheaply and win this nice piece (I think so) for a good price.
Only the small "eye" at end of the scabbard seems to be missing.
Here the original link: https://www.auctionflex.com/showlot...genum=1&lang=En

What do you think?

Best regards,

Detlef

A VERY NICE EXAMPLE AND IN ALMOST PERFECT SHAPE, EVEN THE FIBER WRAPS ARE IN EXCELLENT SHAPE. THE LARGE ONES ARE GETTING HARD TO FIND ESPECIALLY ONES WITH GOOD CARVING ON HANDLE AND SCABBARD. CONGRADULATIONS!
RICK AND JOSE AND CHARLES HAVE HAD SOME OF THESE PERHAPS THEY CAN TELL YOU WHAT THE EYE IS MADE OF SO IT CAN BE PROPERLY REPLACED.

Barry on my example the "eye" at the end is made of a peg of horn and a small disc of mother-of-pearl. Very common on these.

BTW - Sajen nice piece and more complete. Nothing broken.

I had an opportunity to handle this one in person. I think you will be pleased with it. It has a substantial blade. While the hilt and scabbard are not the finest of carving that these can be found, it is still a nice and earlier example. I would place it to the early 20th century century. The blade is quite nice on this one and overall a good size piece. Congratulations!

THERE IS A GOOD PICTURE OF THE EYE IN THE POST DID ANYONE HERE GET THIS TALIBION/GARIB. SAJEN HAS GOOD PICTURES OF HOW IT IS MADE AND MOUNTED FRONT AND BACK. I ASSUME THE HORN IS WATER BUFFALOW AND THAT PEARL SHELL OR IVORY OR BONE COULD BE USED FOR THE OTHER PART.

Steve and Rick, thank you! Good that you both have had it in hand, so I know already that it is a good one. Agree with Rick that it could be a early 20th century. And good also that it have a thick blade!

Regards,

Detlef

You're right Barry, when I have posted the pictures in the other thread I have seen this as well and direct know that I can use this to built up a new eye for the scabbard of my one!

A VERY nice win on this. You did well at the auction. I have a horn pin that I think will be perfect for the end of the scabbard. As soon as I find it I will PM you to get your address so I can send it to you. My congratulations to you on this win also.

Have received the talibon, Rick and Steve are correct, a real massive blade. It is 10 mm thick at the base. Have given the wooden parts a good wood oil since it was very dry and after this a "massage" with antique wax.
Will take some additional pictures and post them the next days.

Regards,

Detlef
