Fijian war club, a massive 19th centruy example.
In very good order, this massive straight war club displays nice tattoo style motif carvings to the bottom 20cms.
Weighing in at nearly 1.5kgs(over 3lbs) this old warrior would have delivered the mighiest of blows had the owner needed to.
Being 80cms long, 4.5cms at the base tapering to 3.5cms to the top of the carved grip the shaft gradually flares to 6cms wide at the head.
A genuine war club from the head hunter period in the South Pacific.
