Our Price: £15.00

c.4000-3000 B.C. A pleasant Neolithic flint scraper and small serrated blade found in the mid-20th Century in Artington, Hampshire and from an old Hampshire collection. The scraper is a simple but nicely executed example in a semi-translucent cream / grey coloured flint with a good and still sharp scraping edge. The small pointed and serrated saw blade is fashioned from a pleasant multicoloured mottled flint, blade edge finely worked to produce crude serrations along one edge. This blade may once have had a small tang on the butt end to fix it into a small wood or bone handle but obviously lost in antiquity. The saw blade has an old ink inscription citing "Artington" on one side. Both in very nice condition and pleasant examples of the type with nice old shiny surface patinations, a pleasant pair of Neolithic tools, scraper 45mm x 29mm, saw blade 42mm x 26mm
