Left Hand Dagger with Side Ring & Downturned Quillons.

Old Copy of a Left Hand Dagger with
Side Ring and Downturned Quillons.
My guess is that this is an early 20th Century piece, the pommel looks much older,
it probably isn't, but I think it looks it. Weighs about a pound and a half.
Balance point is at the juncture of the quillon block and grip.
