Only a few recorded examples of jade-hilted swords exist, including an early seventeenth-century talwar from a private Danish collection published in Copenhagen 1982, p.190 no.154 and an early eighteenth-century jewelled and gold inlaid jade-hilted sword that also by repute came from the Hyderabad Treasury (illustrated in Ricketts and Missillier 1988, p.102, no.167). The form of the hilt with the typical rounded pommel and carved floral decoration is more commonly associated with contemporary jade-hilted daggers. The only other recorded sword with a jade pistol-hilt is the sword presented to General Claude Martin in 1786 by the Nawab Asaf-ud-Daula, now in the Heeramaneck Collection (ibid. p.133, no.221).
