Military Lugged Spear 

  • Dated: circa 1500 (on 19th century wooden haft)
  • Place of Origin: North European
  • Measurements: Overall length 234 cm. Head length 53.5 cm

Also called a “Bohemian Ear-spoon” the head of this polearm is formed of a tapering double-edged blade with a pronounced medial ridge running over its full length on both sides.

It is pierced with two triangular groups of circular holes towards the base and struck with the maker’s mark on both sides. It also features a trefoil filled with three small mullets and tubular socket formed with a pair of triangular flat lugs below a short neck, each pierced en suite with the blade, and each extending to form a pair of straps.

A closely comparable example bearing the mark of the same maker is in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, inv. no. 14.25.460; see WALDMAN, John, Hafted Weapons in Medieval and Renaissance Europe, Boston 2005, p.8, fig.1.
