The set consists of 13 iron headed arrows all with bamboo shafts each with hand notched end for bow string. 12 of the arrows have leaf shaped iron blades with barbs & steel tangs cut and bound into their bamboo shafts. One arrow head is chisel shaped with tang cut and bound into its bamboo shaft. The iron of each arrow head has even patina of aged iron. Similar Native African arrow heads are illustrated on page 74 of Stone’s book ‘A Glossary Of The Construction Decoration & Use Of Arms & Armour. The arrows are contained in their original period wood covered leather quiver bucket. The leather has panels of finely hand tooled geometric decoration.
