Old Oceanic Polynesian Fa'alautalinga Samoa Or Tongan Ironwood Apa’apai War Club For Sale

Old Oceanic Polynesian Fa'alautalinga Samoa Or Tongan Ironwood Apa’apai War Club

MORE PHOTOS BELOW

You are offerding on a Old Oceanic Polynesian Fa'alautalinga Samoa Samoan war club or a Tonga Tongan ironwood apa’apai War Club. It measures approx. 30 1/2 inches long. The head is approx. 6 1/2 inches wide and approx. 1 3/4 inches thick at the center. Decorated on both side with traditional Polynesian chip carving. Same style as Polynesian tattoo art. This club is quite old and has a wonderful old surface. The handle has a nice burnished smooth surface. Comes from a local estate sale.

I found similar examples on the internet that were called Samoan and other examples that were called Tongan. I am unsure which this is. I am not an expert in Oceanic art and will leave the classification to those who know better. I would be interested to know what others think though. Whichever this is, it is certainly old and quite rare.

CONDITION: Good. Some slight chips to edge of wood on head. Very minor though. Basically in very good condition.
