Description

A mace is a blunt weapon, a type of club or virge that uses a heavy head on the end of a handle to deliver powerful blows. A mace typically consists of a strong, heavy, wooden or metal shaft, often reinforced with metal, featuring a head made of stone, copper, bronze, iron, or steel.

This mace resembles one used in Eastern Europe during the 16th-17th centuries, just as closely as it does some in China from 1009 or Persia around the same period. It features a carbon steel somewhat onion shaped head attached to straight rod with design detail on the head half or the shaft. A leather grip and hanging strap complete this piece.

History

Mainly used between the 11th to the 16th century, the mace was the principle weapon using in hand to hand combat throughout Europe. It was commonly hung from the saddle.
