Shang Dynasty Bronze Ge Dagger Axe

This is a very early, copper alloy, dagger axe (ge) from ancient China. The style indicates that it could be as early as the Shang Dynasty (circa 1100 bc). The deep red patina suggests a very high copper content as was common in Shang period pieces. It is very sold and stable with no signs of repair or restoration. It weighs 173 grams. It measures 19 cm in length and 9.3 cm in height. Authentic Chinese antiquities are becoming very scarce so don't miss your chance to add this piece to your collection.
