An excellent antique 19th Century African warrior's fighting spear. With hand wrought iron spear head of leaf-shaped form and with distinctive medial ridge to the centre. Dark, hardwood grip and distinctive turned iron foot. The blade has a great colour and forged appearance. Am not sure what particular region or tribe this is associated with and have ascribed it an African origin but open to any other suggestions. What I like about the spear is the quality of its construction as this factor can vary widely in the field of African bladed weapons. We are on safe ground with this one.
Spear would make a great display piece
The spear has got a great feel and weight and would make a great display piece, particularly when combined with a shield, axes and knobkerries. The collecting of antique African weaponry is becoming quite popular and I would guess that it will become a strong collecting field in the future, with prices rising in parallel. Length of the spear is 53 inches.
