This is an ancient bronze socketed spear point from southeast Asia. The style and decor suggests that it could be from the Ba-Shu culture which thrived in the area which is now Sichuan Province. The spear is decorated on both sides with geometric designs and what appears to be a Phoenix and snake. Though there are some losses to the blade edges due to the high-tin content of the alloy common to that culture and time period, this is still a fantastic piece for any collection. The attachment loops on both sides are still intact with no sign of repair or restoration. This piece measures nearly 22 cm in length and weighs 122 grams. This piece was formerly in the collection of the late John Piscopo.
