Hi Chris,
I have to agree with Philip as to the question marks re these swords. The fittings do not sit well with me and the 'antiqued' brass work reminds me of the fittings on so called 'antique' Indian furniture sold in some shops here in the U.K. The blades do not have the normal Indian type ricasso but I suppose that feature could have been ground out. I really like the shape and look of the blades regardless of origin but as I said the leatherwork and the furniture just don't look right.
My Regards,
Norman.
