Lot 0050C
Western Europe, ca. 17th to 18th century CE. A huge polearm weapon with an ox tongue spear form - a broad-headed, double-edged spear first developed in 15th century Europe. The form is similar to that of a partisan, but lacks the secondary protrusions from the base. Below the blade is an octagonal socket that widens to join a long wooden pole, held in place by four projecting rivets. Below the socket is a regularly crinkled, round disc that forms a ceremonial guard. Deep red decorative tassels are in place below the socket and guard. Size: 5.85" W x 86" H (14.9 cm x 218.4 cm)
