Smile A FEW UNUSUAL CLUBS

THINGS SEEM A BIT SLOW TODAY SO HERE ARE SOME CLUBS TO LOOK AT AND VOICE AN OPINION ON.
1. HAS A LARGE SPIKY HEAD AND INLAYED BEADS SAID TO BE A REPLICA OF A SCANDINAVIAN WAR CLUB. A BIT OF ARTISTIC LISENCE TAKEN BUT VERY ATTRACTIVE AND PLENTY HEAVY FOR ACTUAL USE. 22IN L, HEAD 5IN. IN DIAMETER. 2 PICTURES
2. UNKNOWN NICELY CARVED WITH SPIKES OF WOOD AND INSET TEETH. THE SELLER HAD NO CLUE SAID HUMAN TEETH AT ONE POINT. I SUSPECT PORPUSE TEETH WHICH ARE SOMETIMES USED ON OCEANIC CLUBS.52CM. LONG. 3 PICTURES
3 THE LEAST PRETENCIOUS OF THE LOT SELLER SAID FIJI BUT FROM WHAT I SEE LIKELY TONGAN CARVING SO POSSIBLY CARVED ON FIJI. 23 INCHES LONG. 5 PICTURES
4. SAID TO BE AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL HAND CARVED WAR CLUB 58CM. L. UNUSUAL WOOD WITH BEAUTIFUL GRAIN LOOKS SIMULAR TO SOME AUSTRALIAN WOODS I HAVE SEEN BUT IS QUITE A BIT DIFFERENT FROM THOSE I HAVE SEEN BEFORE. A VERY SERVICIBLE CLUB. 2 PICTURES
