An enigmatic type of axe, this one probably from tribal north India.
Very rare subtype of a Khond tribal axe with double points.
Forged iron, swiveled stirrups with an entirely beaded frame and openwork platforms.
Made of solid silver, in Qing court style. With 19th-century European import marks.
A what? Yes exactly. An extremely rare piece, the only example I am aware of in published collections at least.
