Good condition.

Antique copper shield clip, Dhal or Gatka with a rare Mughal image.
It is a wrist-hand shield clip (buckler) with a convex shape.
This is decorated by a Trimutii in relief, Vishnu holding a rapier, enclosed by two Brahma, Shiva and Nandi (animal). At the top by a cobra and two birds.
It was attached to the hand by a hoop and two rings at the back (to hold the shield), with a leather rope.
This type of small wrist-hand shields were used by warriors in battle, during the 16th/17th century. So the small shield was held in the left hand and the sword was held in the right hand.

Size: 22 cm x 20 cm. Weight: 698 grams. India, 16th/17th century. Polished by touch.
Registered and insured shipping via PostNL.

    Je suis antiquaire et guide de voyages depuis 50 ans en Asie. Ce bronze ne peut en aucun cas dater d'environ 1900. Il est sans aucune usure et possède une patine artificielle.
