Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: Luristan, modern-day Iran, ca. 1000 to 600 BCE. A beautiful bronze socketed spearhead with fine details on one side showing how it was cast and then hammered into shape. It is relatively rare to find a weapon with such clear evidence for how it was made. This type of weapon probably ended its first life as a grave good in the tomb of one of Luristan's nomadic horse warriors. Size: 8.25" L x 1.25" W (21 cm x 3.2 cm)

Provenance: Ex-Estate of John Piscopo. Mr. Piscopo was one of the largest collectors of ancient weapons in the US with a collection that spanned all cultures, all ages.

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.

We ship worldwide and handle all shipping in-house for your convenience.
