Pair of Turkish-style Jambiya

A pair of Turkish style jambiya. Included is the accession card from their display in the Indiana State Museum.

It is very unlikely that either story on the card is factual. Fanciful tails get assigned to lots of foreign objects, and nothing about these pieces suggests they were made for heavy use. However, the card is part of their history and comes with them.

The brass and leather (appears to be goatskin) both show expected wear for age. The blades are in good condition, but I can't attest to their temper.

Interesting collectibles, probably made as collectibles, over a century ago.

$200 for the pair with card.
