Late-Ottoman ‘yatağan’ (sword with forward bend).

Ottoman sword, 17th century. The nielloed silver mounts are typical of Ottoman weapons, although the use of lapis lazuli are rare. The straight European blade suggests that this cavalry weapon was carried in addition to the more usual curved saber. Pairs of weapons with straight and curved blades were common in eastern Europe in the seventeenth century. Bequest of George C. Stone, 1935 , The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
