Congratulations Daniel, as the owner of one of Michael's spears I will say that you will be very impressed with it.
'I saw young Harry, -with his bevor on,
His cuisses on his thighs, gallantly arm'd,-
Rise from the ground like feather'd Mercury,
And vaulted with such ease into his seat,
As if an angel dropp'd down from the clouds,
To turn and wind a fiery Pegasus,
And witch the world with noble horsemanship.'

Congratulations Daniel and let us know what you think of the spear head when you get it. Wink Cool

I could " gush " again about how great it is but then I just finished a long series of post " bumpings " where I talked everybody's ears off about donating and how nice this spear head is. Wink

Really surprised and extremely pleased to win such an item.

The work appears to be so clean and crisp , beautifully simple, and the photos probably don't do it justice. Pretty excited and very anxious to see the spear "in person" and have my white gloves at the ready.

Jean, I really appreciate your generosity and promise to be a good custodian!.

Regards to all,
Dan

Well glad it's going to a good home and to someone who will appreciate it. Wink Big Grin Cool ( Although most people who frequent
" myArmoury " would be likely to appreciate it's quality ).

I won't say that giving is better than receiving but it's at least as good. Big Grin

Greetings,

The spear arrived yesterday. The photos give only a slight hint as to what it like "in the flesh." The beautiful flawless satin finish is really accented by the faceted surfaces. The piece measures 13.5'' X 2.25" and looks like it would be light, but it is very hefty. Have already discarded the idea of mounting it on a shaft; just couldn't do it justice.

Michael, my compliment to you for a very good product.

And again, thanks to Jean for his generosity.

Regards,
Dan

Well, very glad you like it and I did keep on and on and on repeating how nice mine is and even better than the excellent spear head it looks to be in the pics.

Daniel: I agree that it's nice enough that mounting it and doing it justice may be challenging, but you could mount it semi permanently by just fitting it tightly as a pressure fit is almost good enough without adding any adhesive if the fit is precise.

A small nail on each side added for safety that could be removed easily ( Or tiny screws maybe ? Not historical but this way you could mount it and get the feel of it as a using spear but take the head off and display it in it's nice box most of the time ).
