Masai Sword called Seme, with original belt. - For Sale

Masai Sword called Seme, with original belt.
Price: $250.00
Although documented as a sword, this example of a Seme is smaller than usual. Almost as though it was created for an important youth, it is none the less is a well forged and sharp blade housed in a hide scabbard, dyed with natural pigment, in traditional red. The belt is worked to simulate reptile skin and is original to the sword. The scabbard also has a metal and bead adornment at the tip. Again suggesting that this mayy have been for a youth of importance, one can only speculate since this sword has been in a US collection for almost 20 years. In very good condition with only some spotting and darkening on the blade and normal scabbard and hilt wear. Early to Mid 20thC. Overall length in scabbard,16", blade 9.5", hilt 5"
