Such work was made in the Royal workshops of Lhasa.
With a rare, finely forged double hairpin blade.
This kind of fine work is typical for Tibetan work of the 15th-16th centuries.
With iron, silver overlaid hilt. Its associated scabbard features fine quillwork.
Thought to have been presented by the Royal House of Nepal.

An exceptionally large example with a desirable three fullered blade.
