Description

Omani Silver Arab Jambiya Dagger

Damascus steel blade, with a handle and scabbard chased and repousséd silver, silver mounts and woven silver on scabbard. Ornate and intricately decorated silver covered scabbard with brown leather covering on back side. This Omani Silver Arab Jambiya Dagger has 7 silver rings on the front of the scabbard, held together by silver wire. They also brought 2 silver shells adorning the side rings.
The Oman silver (Tested positive for Sterling Silver) is considered the best in Arabia, and its silversmiths are the most prestigious. It is finely worked throughout the sheath, as well as in the handle. The blade is steel and double-edged. The sheath inside is made of wood covered in leather. Piece is believed to be from the 19th Century and is very well preserved given its years.

Repoussé or repoussage is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. It is a form of toreutics. This piece is covered with thin, partly embossed silver sheet metal, as well as soldered silver wire crafted in strips of filigree spheres and floral rosettes. There are few techniques that offer such diversity of expression while still being relatively economical. Chasing is the opposite of repoussé, and the two are used in conjunction to create a finished piece. It is also known as embossing. Read More
