Thai silver mounted dha knife

Scarce Thai silver mounted Dha knife

 A good Thai dha knife, fully silver mounted, the hilt and sheath mounts with high relief chiselling, the grip chiselled with a dragon in stylised form. The blade curving and of good quality steel.  It is fairly rare to find shorter examples of Thai dha of this form, presumably they would have been worn in combination with a longer sword.This is a fine old example 19th century.
