Subject:Turquoise Dagger
Posted By: Doug Johnson Tue, Aug 30, 2022 IP:

I will appreciate your opinion on this dagger. Is it made from crushed turquoise, and if so, is it a valuable Asian art piece? I have not found anything similar in researching this item. Thank you for your help. Best, Doug Johnson

This looks to be an epoxy type decorative piece formed in a mould and then hand worked. The back looks to have clay “cat litter” type material imbedded in the epoxy possibly as a filler.

Are the stones glued on or individually set?
fine artwork, or something for the tourists?.
you are the judge,
