18th century, probably Mahratta. 90” length. Forged iron head of awl pike form with elongated pyramidal form barbed base point in three stages with chiseled decoration. Punched cursive arsenal marking to one side. Banded bolster with three inlaid brass bands and chiseled decoration to the iron. Butted seam conical socket with spiral stippled band and a captive noise maker ring which seats at the bottom for silencing. An extraordinary element. Orange pigmented cane shaft, probably a later arsenal replacement. At the time, it was customary to replace pole arm hafts on a regular basis both to assure readiness for the weapon as well as to make work for arsenal employees who, like the weapons needed to be maintained in peace to assure that they were in place when war broke out. Only example of its type we have encountered.
