Aboriginal nail head Club

Savage Aboriginal nail head Club from South east Queensland

 

Object type: club

Locality: Southeast Queensland Australia

Artist: Unknown

Circa: 1920

Length: 66 cm

Description:

This savage old nail headed club was purchased from a United kingdom Auction where it was being sold as a trench fighting weapon.  It has had a long life and one side of the shaft has major loss. This area of loss though also has a good patina indicating that it was still being used despite the battle damage.

Even today if I hear a thump in the night it tends to be the club of choice to go and have a look-see.

 

Price: $700
