A superb and completely unique c.1900 Sri-Lankan solid silver Kastane Sword
Here is a unique opportunity to acquire a presentation kastane of exceptional quality and design. It was presented to Mudaliyar B.P. Amerasinghe and from initial and limited research it appears he was the father of a notable Sri-Lankan peacemaker, Terence Percivel Amerasinghe - for more information go to: https://sundaytimes.lk/070708/Plus/pls8.html
The kastane has extensive decoration in solid silver and is very heavy, indicating a great amount of silver used in its construction. The dragon-head pommel appears to be inset with ruby eyes. Is complete with its filligree scabbard. The blade is plain and typical of kastane swords. It also comes with a heavy silver linked chain and ball - assume that it is attached to the scabbard and worn as a fitting.
Condition of the Kastane
In exceptional condition and with no damage or repairs - slight wear to the inscription.
Specifications of the Kastane
Blade length is 13.75 inches (19 inches overall).
