Hi,

I am trying to read some inscriptions on persians arms, but it is really difficult for me. I post images here if by any chance, someone can read it !

This one is a Powder horn sold in Christies and attributed to Lotf Ali because of the birds design. The catalogue said it is a verse from Sa'di's Golestan, but I couldn't found it. Sorry, I have no better picture.


This one is on a sword in national museum of Georgia.
I can read the second part like that :
کلب علی خان صاحب نو ؟ ست
But the first one is more difficult. I am only sure of the first word بنده and I suppose it finished by "ast" also.
