A Spinach Green Jade and Gold Mughal Dagger

Dark green jades were highly prized for their strong contrast to inset gold kundan and jewels, Two closely comparable examples are in the Furusiyya Art Foundation Collection, also notable for their use of a very dark jade against which the gold and gemstones stand out brightly. The particular style of the inlaid gold leafy tendrils can be compared to a further jade dagger in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
