18th Century Large Indian Hide Dhal Shield

18th Century Large Indian Hide Dhal Shield

Constructed of thick brown tanned animal hide, the Dhal has four very ornate bosses which are topped with silver rosettes. This shield is still very strong considering its age, but is missing its knuckle cushion. These types of Dhal shields were common on the Indo Persian battlefield and were sometimes worn as back armour.
