This simple piece, which lost its figure, has been vetted as authentic, showing signs of use and age.
Staffs made of iron and brass were displayed in royal compounds to affirm kingly power. Usually depicting a king with related motifs, they were called "Asen" and commemorated past rulers.
The stand is included.
