Halberd Vexilloid from the Wizard of Oz

Halberds for the Wizard of Oz - 1939

The primary weapon of the Wicked Witch's Army consisted of a Halbred. Basically a pole with a deadly tip. The grey tassels it make more than just a weapon. The spear heads are cut in a fancy manner that is more artful than utilitarian.

Here the Scarecrow, Lion,Tin Man, and Toto are in disguise. We get a close up glimpse of the finials with an intricate gingerbread cut. Attached to the finials are large grey tassels that make it a vexilloid. Red tassels are also abundant on their uniforms.
