19th CENTURY ZULU KNOBKERRIE WITH INTRIGUING FEATURES - 26 ins
An interesting 19th century Zulu knobkerrie with unusual features, including bands of wire decoration on the haft, and two holes in the head where presumably studs had once been fixed. Also a small metal plate nailed to the crown (no inscription). Some slight cracks commensurate with age, otherwise good condition; altogether a piece full of character! Overall length 26 ins, diameter of head 3 ins.
