Default Nice takouba sword for comments

Hello dear members,
I want to show you this takouba sword,
I think it is not really old but I found it is a large and lovely model , not too expensive and this time,
my wife found the sword really nice so I can hang it on the living wall ( and not cellar or private desk....😅&#128578

It has a nice silver mounts hilt and scabbard part and it is an heavy model,
I think a local made but large and heavy blade with well carved 5 deep fullers with ostrich-royal crane ? Symbol on each side

Not the classic deco-tuareg sword

I didn't know if tuareg chiefs had this kind of swords or if it has been later decorated for $$tourists....
