For sale here is an interesting Ancient Bronze Sword. The sword has an overall length of approximately 17", and a blade length of approximately 11 1/2".The blade has a width of about1 1/8. The actual handle is very small and only has a hand space of about 3 between the pommel and the crossguard. Everything is integrated, including the pommel and crossguard. The entire sword is covered in what looks like a concrete type patina. Where the bronze is coming through the soil, the bronze is nearly black.
There is some lighter color bronze near the tip, where it looks like the sword has been reently dropped dislodging some of the soil. The blade is not sharp, and the tip is thicker and is blunt. There is one gouge in the ricasso center area on one side of the sword. The blade does have a few small nicks. The pommel has a fancy open cut out style and the handle has three sections with a raised dot on each side.This is definitely an interesting piece.
