We'e handled dozens of ancient bronze weapons, but quite honestly none are any finer than this exquisite example! European, most likely Hallstatt, central Europe, ca 1200 to 800 AD. Socketed spear with thin, nearly straight socket and small, extremely sharp blades to each side. Junction of base and blade was carefully, and with great skill, incised with series of geometric designs. Spear measures 8"L and has developed an incredible deep patina that is impossible to fake. Custom stand.
