An exceptional pair of brass decorated ceremonial halberds with wooden poles, each inscribed in Chinese with the following “Respectfully submitted to the Zhongyingchuan Hall”. The wooden poles each have two drilled holes, perhaps to assist with displaying these on a wall. The halberds date to the latter half of the 19th century, with the poles added at a later date. Very good overall condition with minor surface wear and surface losses, and a few spots of verdigris. Dimensions: Overall 80 ½” x 11” w. Provenance: Purportedly from the Pearl S. Buck estate in Philadelphia. Buck was a well-known author, and the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize for Literature.
