Thanks for the replies what made me go for it was largely the bead work very much in the style of the Plains native Americans? I might be able to add more when I have it. It certainly does not have...

Smile Powder horn? gun experts

Having sold the bulk of my collection this is the first step back into the insane world of collecting. I have hopes for its origin. The points of interest for me are the style and way the beads are...

I have a British late 1700s early 1800s navel dirk blade {no handle or guard} of pretty much the same as this German blade. I will add a picture when I find it.

I had one with plain wood handle and with a smaller pointy blade. I would say it is a uncommon variant of a common weapon form.

The USA shot gun cartridge might suggest an area with greater USA influence than Africa. Possibly the Philippines?

Might depend on how hard you scratch. Another indication as to jade or nephrite is the price. A big sound lump with good colour will cost a fair bit even before hours of workmanship.

I do not think the colour of the wood is much of a factor in identifying the origin with this club. I think the form is so convincing. Traditional "tribal" weapons tend to follow a standard form...

I do not think it is the stick used in the Basque game. It could be a shepherds lead pellet thrower as much as a rabbit hunting stick?

It looks similar to a carp fishing bait throwing stick. Perhaps a rabbit or bird hunting stick that throws a pebble.

I tend to agree not Australia. I wonder if it is some kind of throwing device.? The groove used as a track to launch a projectile of some form.

Perhaps it is a native American hunting stick? ...

These green stones are neither Jade or Nephrite. Yes the hole appears to be made by hand with some kind of mandrel. As you can clearly see the turning of the tool by hand suggests that the stone...

The shape is a bit like a club I had frm Nuie Island and also a club from Vanuatu, but the handle end is a bit odd for those lands. I might just gamble that it is European? Some sword clubs like...
