Boer War Trophy Zulu Chief's Large Root Ball Knobkerrie Carved ‘Boers 1899-00’. Sn 11995 - 11995

An original Zulu Chief's large root ball knobkerrie Boer War Trophy. Knobkierie, also spelled knobkerrie, knopkierie or knobkerry, are clubs used mainly in Southern and Eastern Africa. Typically they have a large knob at one end and can be used for throwing at animals in hunting or for clubbing an enemy's head. The knobkierie is carved from a branch thick enough for the knob, with the rest being whittled down to create the shaft. This heavy club measures 25 ½” in length. The club is made from a hard wood and is in excellent condition, free of damage. At the end of the shaft there is a hole through which is a knotted rope hand loop. The knob is 3”" in diameter and has contemporary crude hand carving ‘Boers 1899-00’ (It was common practice for Soldiers of both sides to bring home Ethnic African items as war trophies). The price includes UK delivery. Sn 11995
