This is a very graceful and beautiful Yemeni dagger. It measures 13" long and weighs nearly a pound. The handle has two pounded coins affixed, and the surface has a nubbly texture to it . I believe it may be either Giraffe or Rhino horn. The leather sheath is embellished with hand worked silver set with a carnelian. The tip has a slight separation. This was made approximately 1880-1920 for ceremonial dress use, so the blade is unsharpened and chromed, a few spots of chrome have flaked off, revealing the steel beneath.

A fine example of inlaid metalwork to come from the Mamluk dynasty was this silver inlaid copper foliate planter featuring a Bismillah design, and deer on the end panels. Meticulously hand carved, then inlaid in silver, the fabrication of this type of metalwork is a dying art. I was very lucky to come across this turn of the century Mamluk revival inlaid planter.

The piece is overall in good condition, considering the age of the piece. It has four half dome feet on the bottom, and it does not appear to be made for the tourist trade. Measuring 12" long by 6" deep and 4" tall, and weighing nearly 3 pounds, this is a very substantial and well crafted container.
