This is a typical Near Eastern Composite bow used by Turks, Tatars, Eastern Europeans, Persians and Northern Indians. This bow is slightly different in shape than the typical Indian bow “Kaman”. The Process to make a composite bow was very long and complicated; different horn was used, wood and sinew. Therefore composite bows were very expansive compared to the other weapons. Army military power was dependent on the horsemen armed with bows. I have attached a copy from a book showing how the composite bow was built. The bow is in good condition considering its age and the material that the bow was built from; horn, wood and sinew etc. The bow is 45 inches (115cm) long in curved line.
