I recently acquired this fine Tongan club from the widow of an arms and armor collector outside of Toronto. It was the pride of their collection and is substantial in scale and delicate in design. Unusual is the reverse side of the blade where the design was left incomplete. One can see where a second carver attempted to finish what the far superior carver had started—was it a pupil trying to finish the work of a deceased master? Hard to say but either way the club has a wonderful dark and aged patina that indicates the club served a long life in the field before being collected. The club dates to the mid 19th century or before, is 45 ¼” (115 cm) in height and sells for $8000. Questions?
