Replacement weapons for old figurines

Ok, so we've got these in the house. They're not mine and I'm told they're a few hundred years old and Chinese. They're somewhat bashed and battered. No idea. 

 

But what I'm actually interested in - if you look at the hands, they're clearly designed to be holding some kind of staff or weapon in both hands. So question: What? And could you get replacements (not originals, obviously, but something that might look like it might be?)

Although not strictly necessary to answer your question, a view of the bottom is really important to understand the item. (As would be a plain straight-on view of the front and back of the item, not a slanted view.)

 

A Google Images search on Chinese gesso or Chinese gesso figurine will bring things like this up.
