Also known as holy water sprinklers, these were stocked in town arsenals to arm the citizenry in the event of attack. This example dating to the 30 Years War and likely preserved in a town arsenal. 76 1/2” length. The wood haft with swelled octagonal section end mounted with forged elongated pyramidal iron spikes. Forged iron bans to the top and triangular section top spike. Untouched arsenal patina. A real show stopper!
