Western Apache Stone/Bull Tail War Club 1880's

A very rare, yet once common Apache man's war club fashioned from a bull's tail, wood and stone. Collected in Dulce, New Mexico in the 1920's by an Arizona rancher, this club is a "no frills" weapon and retains some vestigial traces of black, green and yellow ochre mineral paints. Apache's told the rancher that they used these on Mexican kidnappers who were stealing their children. The club measures 20" long. The bull tail is 22" long. Sewn with sinew, the club is in reasonably good condition for its age with some aging and slight separation of the seams. The leather on the tail is worn and slightly separated although still intact.
