Very EARLY COLONIAL Iron Trade Ax, Made by Blacksmith. D ESCRIPTION: Scans show it all..... Very early colonial American antique IRON TRADE AX, hand made by earl blacksmith. Great looking appearance and patina to the iron.As shown, it has great lines and early style. Measures about 7 1/2" long x 5 1/2" high x about 1 3/4 wide. Made by early blacksmiths to be given, or traded, to early native American tribes and warriors. Made to generate good will, as this sort of thing was very useful to them and something they had no other way to get. THIS WAS VERY WELL-MADE AND HAS GREAT EARLY LINES. Probably made NO LATER THAN 1700. Look at the great, early, widely flaring, cutting edge. In very good condition overall. You can see some evidence of use on the back. GIVEN THE EARLY AGE, COULD HAVE ALSO BEEN FROM A COLONIAL TOOL, For EXAMPLE AN ADZE USED TO SPLIT TIMBERS IN EARLY HOUSES. Study the detail in this, and the great construction and early design. And of course, you can picture the early blacksmith WORKING OVER THE ANVIL AND POUNDING THIS OUT SO MANY, MANY YEARS AGO!!
