A rare British found Neolithic bone chisel. SOLD
Our Price: £0.00


c.3000-2000 B.C. A rare British found Neolithic bone chisel found in East Anglia and from an old established Cornish collection. Probably fashioned from a piece of animal rib bone, it has been ground and smoothd on either side of the tip to form a chisel like blade. It may have been used for working small wood items or may even be a potters tool for use in impressing geometric designs into the clay of a pot or urn, prior to baking in a fire to harden.  In nice condition with excellent surfaces and a mildly shiny surface patination. Neolithic bone items are rarely found or offered for sale and this is a particularly interesting example. 70mm long x 18mm wide x 8mm thick.
