Encrusted Nineteenth Century Ottoman or Hungarian Damascus Steel

Magnificent Jewel Encrusted Nineteenth Century Ottoman or Hungarian Damascus Steel Saber. The sword has a curved Damascus blade, single-edged with a 5" false edge, and etched with trophies-of-arms, Turkish flags, and Cufic inscriptions. The mameluke-style hilt and scabbard fittings are silver-gilt with multi-color enamels and set with turquoise and cabochon red stones (some missing). The grip is wrapped silver wire with an enameled lozenge on the silver-gilt pommel. The cross-guard is also silver-gilt with openwork quillons. It is missing an enamel lozenge on the front and has a well executed engraved floral design on the back. The scabbard is wood covered in blue velvet. The fittings are similar to the cross-guard, with silver-gilt and enamels, set with stones and engraved reverses. The 5" upper mount and 7" bottom mount are particularly beautiful and well-executed. There are two middle mounts, one a ring-mount, and the other missing a lozenge. This type of sword, very popular in Ottoman lands, was also popular many Balkan states and Eastern European countries such as Hungary. Similar examples are in the Topkapi Sarayi Museum in Istanbul, Turkey. As mentioned, some stones are missing, else fine.
