GORGEOUS 19TH C. SAMOAN SPEAR
Item Code: OCS104-003
Description: A fantastic sculptural piece presented on a custom metal stand, featuring three sides of "spinney" relief carved barbs! Carved from a very hard wood, the spear has a graceful curve to it suggesting that it used as a "short spear" in close combat and was not cut off from a longer fighting spear. It is so impressively carved that it may have also served has a type of ceremonial prestige object. It retains the remnants of an old label and has acquired a dark rich patina from age and use. Some barbs have old chips and loss.
