A single, genuine ancient Near Eastern Bronze Age arrow from the famous Axel Guttmann collection, dating to approximately 1200 - 800 BC.


The sale price is for ONE arrow, similar to the ones photographed.


These beautiful, robust arrows survive with complete tangs and are of elegant, long leaf-shaped form, with shallow mid-ribs. The largest arrow-type from the Guttmann collection. 


Arrows such as this were used by the Early Cultures of Babylonia, Assyria and Anatolia. The Near East was at that time one of the most advanced regions on the planet and has been referred to as the "Cradle of Civilization". This arrow would have been used by some long-forgotten soldier, perhaps belonging to one of the mighty armies of Biblical King Nebuchadnezzar, approximately three Millennia ago.


An awesome display piece with a fascinating history. 



Condition: Unrestored.  


Length: 4 3/4 inches. 


Provenance:


Ex. Axel Guttmann Collection.  Guttmann was without doubt the most famous collector of ancient militaria in the modern era, many of his pieces being published in several volumes by authors Hermann Born & Ursula Seidl.  His collection was so rich that a Museum was created in Berlin to house his many objects.  The arrows from the Guttmann collection were all exhibited in the Guttmann Museum in Berlin, Germany in the 1990's.


An image of the original bowl containing all of the Guttman arrows, clearly showing them to be of this type, will be provided to the winning bidder upon request. Beware many arrows that are falsely attributed to the Guttmann collection!
