C1880 Sudanese Mahdist Axe £245




A nice example of a Mahdist warriors axe, these are weapons and devotional pieces being directly influenced by the Persian Islamic style. Rather than the iron hafts of the traditional Persian axes this axe has the very stereotypical hardwood wrapped in crocodile skin leather.


The axe head has Mahdist thuluth script etched into the blade with some wear and blackening from age.


This axe can be yours for £245 or best offer.
