mughalshit:

Ram’s Head Dagger
India (likely Jaipur), Mughal, 18th or 19th century
Hilt: Gold, enameled and set with precious stones; kundan technique Blade: steel

Often tucked into a sash or horseman’s boot, daggers in Mughal India displayed the wealth and power of their owners. An intricately patterned ram’s head pommel adorns the hilt of this dagger, made in the kundan technique in which gems are set into malleable pure gold foil, allowing them to be arranged in any pattern or density over curved surfaces. In this dagger, pieces of quartz adorning the cross guard are surrounded by raised borders of gold which form the curved lines of a flower. The ram’s head is decorated with a floral scroll and is separated from the hilt grip by a quartz collar, also in the kundan method.

This dagger bears a striking resemblance to another dagger posted recently.

So today, boss tasked me with coming up with a few of these to put around the store! Little info sheets to help anyone nervous/overwhelmed/confused about where to start with comics!

It’s by no means a comprehensive list; just a few store favorites and really great books that we always keep in stock to recommend. I’ll be doing some more over the next few weeks…deadpool, avengers, iron man, cap, and more! As well as a couple of SO YOU WANT TO READ MARVEL sheets for characters that don’t have enough of a backlog for a whole sheet. Then on to DC, and different genres of other comics!

I’m very excited! It’s based on an idea kellysue shared with me last year but we both got WAY too busy to do anything with it, so I thought I would put it here for everyone to share around, and maybe it will help get some people reading great comics!
