Object Description

A fine Luristan bronze spearhead featuring an ovate blade with a rectangular midrib running down the centre, tapering at the point. The blade slopes into rounded shoulders leading to a square shaft with flaring corners. The spearhead then narrows into a short tang ending with a slight angled bend. This ‘rat-tail’ construction inserted into a wooden shaft reduced further splitting upon use.

Date: 1800-600 BC

Object Condition

Very fine condition, beautiful green patination to the surface.
