18th Century Large Indian Hide Dhal Shield

18th Century Large Indian Hide Dhal Shield

Constructed of very thick animal hide, with careful examination resembles Dhals made from Rhino hide. The Dhal still has its four original bosses and is sealed with an even black lacquer. The 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.
