Indo-Persian dhal / sipar buckler

From my Samples, Singulars, and Somethings Completely Different collection -

A strong and studry buckler. In India they're called dhal, in Persia they're sipar. Regional variants abound, but they're similar. Thick enameled / painted steel with a rolled rim and traditional padded hand grips. I haven't listed this as an antique because I believe it is of relatively modern manufacturs, but it's definetly not a decorative wall hanger - this buckler is made for use.
