 Vintage East African Masai Hunting Spear.

*PLEASE NOTE - this item must be collected from our gallery only. Thank you.

 

 

Height: 1455mm

Width of spear head: 40mm

Length of spear head: 215mm

 

An impressive piece of tribal African weaponry indeed.

This spear is East African in origin. It has been authenticated as being from  the Masai tribe from Kenya. 

It is an older piece, as one can see from the sinew bound haft and the metal of  the iron spear head which is rusted and shows signs of wear. 

The sinew binding itself is in good condition, with only very slight fraying.

It is possibly 19th Century.

This tall spear would have been used as a throwing spear for hunting Lion or Buffalo and  for protection of the herd and not as a stabbing spear during combat.

A wonderful opportunity for the collector. Not to be missed.
