This top quality pesh-kabz is in excellent condition. The handle is decorated with three floral scroll ornaments in gold on each side. The decoration depicts a bird, perhaps a parrot, framed with a plant motif, near the point where the handle joins the blade. The blade has an elegant silhouette, but becomes stronger and wider at the tip. A gold bird, perhaps a peacock, decorates the surface.
