Copper Phurpa / Phurba Dagger Hard Case / Sheath, Tibet

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

If you have a brass, bronze or wooden Phurpa that is about 6-8” in total length, this is a hard case for your piece.  Superb quality, this case was handcrafted in the 1930s or 1940s.  The leather might be newer.   This case has travelled through central and southeast Asia – through many hands.  I found this case in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia in an antique shop.  This is a stunning piece of art in its own right.  For the Serious Collector.
