89 1/2"length. Finely forged iron head with central spear point flanked by wavy points. The lower section and the base of each point chisel decorated in foliage and tendrils. Chiseling was reserved for best quality items with etching being the form of decoration most often encountered. The center of the base panels, both sides with a cartouche, formerly decorated in silver or gold, now worn. Flared bolster and thickened edge tapered socket. Wood haft painted green and with a band of decoration with foliate, perhaps stylized calligraphic, motifs in black outline with two red accents. That style is used on Persian miniature paintings and in European, to produce images on leaded glass. Fine display combining elegance with obvious functionality.
