Description

Taureg Silver Dagger

This Taureg Silver Dagger is presented in a beautiful silver scabbard. It has been decorated with the traditional tribal symbols of the Tuareg people of North Africa. The Tuareg inhabit the Sahara in North Africa and are talented silver craftsmen. This knife incorporates very fine detailed designs. Black onyx pieces add extra charm in both the handle and scabbard.

This vintage silver dagger in scabbard, is also complimented by the leather which decorates the scabbard. Tuareg artistry is full of symbolism.  Tuareg women tattoo their faces with designs similar to what’s on the scabbard. You’ll sometimes see American Tribal Style belly dancers emulate the facial tattoos. The Tuareg people were the craftspeople of North Africa. They produced the arms for warriors, the tools for agriculture and decorative pieces. An engraving tool is used to create the geometric forms on the dagger and scabbard. These represent nature and also the Sahara desert. These Taureg Silver Daggers were used by Tuareg tribes people in their traditional way of life. This style of dagger is known as a ”Telek.”

A nice quality antique silver mounted North African Tuareg dagger, with a double edged blade, and a hilt mostly covered with engraved eastern silver, it is complete with it’s original tooled leather scabbard with a large eastern silver bottom mount, which also has nice pierced and engraved decoration, some light age marking on the blade, otherwise the general condition is excellent.

It makes a great gift as a letter opener or as a special decorative piece on your desk or coffee table. This is an original piece of Moroccan craftsmanship. It has been produced by hand and also exhibits some wear consistent with the age of this vintage piece. It really is a lovely and unique ornate decorative dagger.
