Spearhead SOLD
Indo-Ottoman, around 1800
Indo-Persian arms

From my personal collection. A spearhead of Ottoman design adorned with cross-hatched Indian koftgari work. The spear itself is not exceptional but the fact that it has koftgari work referring to the Mughals makes it a rare artefact. It's evidence of the good relationship between some of the Mughal rulers and the Ottoman Khilafat. Over 90% of the gold is intact and the is very good.
