Description

An all-steel Indian mace with long round cross section haft. The mace head end abruptly curved and turns into a square cross-section hammer tip. The pommel end is bud-shaped and the haft is decorated with file work.

 

Dating

Such maces are rather rare and we have very little concrete information about them. Lacking any pieces with solid provenance, it is also hard to build up a timeline for accurately dating them.

It looks older than the slightly larger mace listed here, and I would tentatively date this one to the 16th-18th century.
