The gold sword
Not so long ago, we were lucky to get very interesting information about an antique gold sword that currently belongs to one family from Thailand. This beautiful 1,200-year-old sword is believed to have been made in the early 9th century during the reign of Jayavarman II who is considered the founder of the Khmer Empire, the predecessor state to modern Cambodia. The artifact was inherited from Phraya Nakhon Phra Ram, the ruler of Phitsanulok, the major city in the east of the Sukhothai Kingdom (north-central Thailand) in the mid-13th century.
The scabbard and holder of the antique sword are made of 1.4kg ancient gold, carved, and decorated with various natural gemstones. The blade itself is made of nine different metals: gold, iron, silver, copper, mercury, zinc, lead, bornite, and 99.9% copper. The sword is 86cm long and 5.5cm wide.
This ancient sword is indeed unique and very valuable, and it is currently available for sale. Since Fine Art Shippers is proficient in providing professional fine art handling and antique shipping services, we would be happy to ship this amazing artifact from Thailand to its new owner.
