16th Century Ceremonial Pole-Axes.


These are Ceremonial Pole Axes dating from 1500. Derived from the popular pole arm of the dismounted knight, this weapon became more frequently used as a weapon of office rather than a weapon of war. Often used by officers and guards and regularly seen in ceremonial processions.
Our Pole Axes are cast in Aluminium and mounted on a hardwood shaft. The silk tassels are deep madder red.
