Dean Castle Arms and Armour


Scabbard for left hand dagger


This object is a sheath for a parrying dagger, functioning to protect both the blade, by holding it without blunting the edge, and protecting its user from its sharp edges when out of use. This scabbard is composed of a brown leather mid-section, with a gilded throat and chape. The throat and chape are decorated with undulating lines and an orb on each side with repeated circular patterns, the larger of which overlap, etched into the metal.
