2 Antique 19thC Asian INDIAN Mahogany Military EXERCISE CLUBS 31" 9 Kilos
Firstly... to really appreciate the item you need to ENLARGE the photographs...left mouse click ...they may look a differant colour due to the flash...the item you see will be the item you get.
Here is a pair of 19th century INDIAN lathe turned wood EXERCISE CLUBS ...I am not sure what sort of wood they are.. its a hardwood and could be Mahogany or Teak ...as you can see they have turned handles making them a very good RIBBED GRIP .. when you hold them you will understand WHY they need this grip.
They have really nice deep patination of stains and colours as well as slight natural cracking to the wood BE ASSURED they are not dropping apart !
Both tops of the handles have the little mark that is created from being on a lathe ...One of the handles does have a bit of damage at the top on the very edge of the top and you can see this has been done in antiquity and is NOT a recent knock.... and they BOTH show signs of use on their bases... see the photographs.
Just do a google search about these and types and styles you will see and how they were used etc .... its fascinating.
They stand 30 and a half inch long x 4inch dia and they weigh FAR TOO MUCH for my scales..... they actually weigh 9 kilos together. so about 4.5kilos each. .
They are for the muscle men of the world and not slight folks as these do take some holding....would make a great conversation piece or party game ....WHO CAN HOLD THEM UP THE LONGEST ....You WIN !
I am in North Yorkshire if you want to pick them up..in doing so its CASH ON COLLECTION... or if you can arrange for your own shipper to pick them up from me that will be fine as well.. make sure they WRAP and PACK them though as I will not be doing any of that.
Please see close up pictures for more detail.
