**Originally Listed At $800**

Western Europe, possibly British Isles, ca. 18th century CE. An iron partisan with a beautiful point that is both deadly and decorative. The head is elaborate and symmetrical, with upward and downward-curving points forming a guard and a long, tapering point with a thick midrib. Instead of a tubular socket, this partisan has wide langets and is attached to its pole by flat-headed nails. Weapons like this one were largely symbolic, having transformed from the sturdy weapons of the 16th century to these slimmer models. Size: 7.75" W x 91" H (19.7 cm x 231.1 cm)

Provenance: private Los Angeles County, California, USA collection
