    Looks to be a fine Persian gold inlaid inscription, my guess is that it will be alligned with someone in the early 18th century......

    I need to see the whole sword first please. Al Soltan Nassereldin Shah means "The ruler King Nassereldin" and "The work of Nazar Ali"

    It is really interesting. During Nassereldin Shah Qajar period, Iranian military had European style military swords. I published some pictures in one of my recent articles. We know that during the Qajar period they added cartouches to older blades. Look at the blade. Are there any signs of wiped off cartouches on the blade? What type of pattern does it have?

    Kind regards

    I can find no work of Nazar Ali published and its always a plus to acclumulate signatures of swordsmiths. Shah Naser o-Din Shah ruled from 1848-1896, so we can place this smith's signature durng that time period, keeping in mind what Manoucher states of smith's signing earlier blades as a possibility especially during the Qajar period. This seems a during the reign type of cartouche as it does not have the style of a royal cartouche.
