c.3000-2500 B.C. A large, heavy and superb Neolithic Granite perforated stone Macehead / Hammer found at Chysauster, Cornwall on the 24/12/1957 and from an old Cornish collection. Expertly fashioned from a most atractive speckled pale grey granite with find location and date inked on one surface in black. Generally ovate in shape with flattened impact surfaces at either end effectively allowing this large mace head to be used both as tribal status symbol and a very effective tool or weapon. A large central hole has been painstakingly bored through the mace head to facilitate it being fixed to a large wooden handle. Totally intact and in superb condition throughout, a rare Neolithic item and an excellent example of its type, 86mm long x 77mm wide x 45mm thick.
