Yemeni Horn Silver Brass Carnelian Jambiya Dagger
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 orange glass. 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.
