Ancient Chinese Minority Culture Decorated Bronze Spear
email for price

This is a beautifully decorated bronze socketed spear point from Sichuan Province. It is most likely from the Ba or Ba-Shu minority culture that flourished in that area. The style and decor are reminiscent of the Shang period but as was often the case with minority culture pieces, this probably dates to a few centuries later. It's delicate attachment loops on either side are still intact and there are no signs of repair. It has a central reinforcing rib and decorations on two surfaces that should be apparent in the photos but feel free to email if you have questions or would like more pics. The overall length is 14.2 cm and the weight is 58 grams. This is a truly amazing piece of ancient history not likely to be seen again. Don't let it get away!
