Unique Saxon Minerís Axe, ca. 1700

Over the years we have had a number of Saxon minerís axes, but this unique example is unlike any weíve ever seen. Instead of the large flat unadorned blade, it features a small axe head with hammer head on reverse, similar to a warhammer. The head is chiseled with acanthus and geometric designs and a pierced shield with the crossed minerís tool logo of the Saxon Minerís Guild; the number "5808" is engraved on one side. The head is secured with a fluted conical finial with engraved design. Mounted on round ebonized wood handle with long engraved base shoe featuring integral chiseled flower petal end cap. Quality workmanship. Metal parts very good, with minimal wear. Wood haft shows minor dings and scrapes from age and use. Overall length 29 Ĺ".
