Swiss Halberd, First Half 17th C
This halberd is of very fine workmanship and of a style we have never encountered before. It features a convex axe blade with pierced geometric shapes, a pair of square-section side lugs, angled rear beak pierced with 3 holes, bridle hook, and flamboyant thrusting blade. It is constructed in a unique manner, with the head joined together with a dovetailed key. Features 4 langets, fastened to its original tapered octagonal walnut shaft with incised line decoration and base ferrule. Large branded shield mark bearing the letters "NE" on the shaft below the langets. This is the first polearm we have encountered with a walnut stock, the quality of which is much like a gunstock. Near excellent original condition. Overall length 89", length of metal 30 1/4"". Very unique and attractive polearm.
