Title Caucasian silver niello belt fittings
Nationality Russian
Period 1863
Price £70.00

These are typical niello belt fittings for a shashqua or kindjhal. About half the fittings are hallmarked 84 and with a Russian town mark and one piece is dated 1863. These were worn typically by Cossack elements, but also sometimes by Russian women.

Their condition is good for the age, except that the two round bosses have had some punishing wear in their day, with parts of the niello abraded. This damage also shows on the face of one of the large plates (which measure 2x1.5" approximately).
