filigree dagger

Filigree being one of the oldest and for me most beautiful art forms used to make very nice silver and gold jewelry.
Especially traditional jewelry and a lot found in the Mediterranean, although more and more disappearing the last 3 to 5 decades.

Most of the forum members might know filigree from decoration on scabbards or handles but also very nice was the fact that filigree dagger brooches were made.
Enclosed one from the former Yugoslavia ( sold around Dubrovnik, Kotor, Mostar and Sarajevo) bought in 1985. Size around 2 to 2,5 cm

some more filigree art. First another broche and based upon the "ball" type it could be from Southern Dalamatia ( Dubrovnik/Ragusa or Bay of Kotor / Boka Kotorska, Kotor/Cattaro) to Italy and Sicily between 1920 - 1950

This one is not Yemenite but classic Omani khanjar.

More precisely is of the "Said" type.

Here is what I believe to be an Yemenite dharia (or shall I call it jambiya ???) from my collection.

and with reference to Jose's excellent restoration, two pictures of Bosnian Yataghans with some fine filigree craftsmanship from Sarajevo's Baščaršija.

If this kind of work may be classified as filigree, here we have a silver Yemenite jannbyya; in this partcular case a work executed by local Jew silversmiths, judging by the author's signature in Temani dialect.

Not to forget that Portuguese filigree was and is a strong manual industry, specially in the Nort of the country.
Not necessarily in the shape of weapons but, still in the universe of miscellania :o ;)

José, the ship (Caravel) is the motif that abunds in theses works; call it ex-libris.
Specially for you, a part of my friend's filigree collection.
Picture 3 is the front of Sain Paul (1602) church ruins in Macau
