Description: Garri Dadyan, born in Baku, Azerbaijan, was named a National Master Artist of the Soviet Union in 1985 for his unparalleled mastery of repousse metal work. In 1993 he became a member of the UNESCO International Federation of Artists in recognition of his superior artistry. A master metal worker, Mr. Dadyan employs the techniques of chasing, repousse, filigree and granulation, wax casting, engraving and niello with equal virtuosity. Working in solid sterling silver with precious stones, Garri brings old world mastery to the new world that few can emulate.
This Horseman's Dagger is a gorgeous example of the fine craftsmanship of this maker. The dagger ground blade is forged from carbon steels. Two fullers travel along each side of the long, slender blade.
Painstakingly sculpted from solid sterling silver, the handle features an abundance of amazingly detailed carving and engraving. Vines, tiny flowers, and scrollwork abound on the handle, guard, and pommel. Each side is set with two dark red rubies (3-1/2 and 4-1/2 mm) separated by a deep blue sapphire (5 mm). Placed into the ends of the quillion guard are purple amethysts (12 mm), and inlaid into the pommel is a sky blue topaz (5 mm). All jewels used are natural gemstones and are meticulously faceted. Prancing atop the pommel is one of the highlights of this piece, an exquisitely hand-carved figure of a horse in sterling silver. The horse has tremendous detail and has a very lifelike appearance.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout! This piece truly deserves to be seen to be appreciated.
