Very nice hammered & engraved shield used by the Indo Persian army for regalia and parade during the early 20th century. Lovely engraved figural work all around and decorative scrollwork, typical with Persian work. With brass mounts and original backing cloth on the reverse.
The rings and other attachments at the back of the shield and some in front are missing some pieces i think but since in 2018 we are not shielding from anything nor do we have to do parades with hundreds of men for bilateral ties with other countries, i think its ok that its missing some parts.
33cm (diameter). The last 2 photos are of Indo Persian army from around 1890-1930s in their military wear.
