Combination of Dha Sword and Percussion Pistol
- Dated: mid-19th century
- Measurements: 72 cm overall length in stock
A very rare example, the barrel serves as a hilt for the single-edged blade, while the scabbard both sheathes the blade and provides the stock. The weapon is mounted in brass with a heavy percussion lock, probably of British workmanship and struck with a series of unidentified marks. This kind of weapon was reputedly popular during the Second Anglo-Burmese War of 1852.
