SOLD

c.2200-1800 B.C. A superb late Neolithic  / Early Bronze Age knapped flint pick / axe found at Ashmore, Dorset which has been professionally re-hafted in prototypical antler socket set into a beautifully crafted wooden handle to represent exactly what the original tool would have looked like and also to demonstrate its use. The flint pick is bifacially well worked from a pleasant whitish & pale grey flint with a rounded blade end and good, still sharp upper and lower blade edges. The pick has good surfaces with nice ageing and patination. The flint pick unmounted would have measured c.75mm long and 50mm of blade is outside the antler mounting. The antler socket is carved from an antique deer antler in a form typical of the late stone age and these were used to help cushion the impact and lessen damage to the flint blades. This is a beautifully re-constructed stone age pick / axe using a genuine Neolithic blade, a large and impressive display item that would grace any serious lithic enthusiasts collection, pick blade approx. 75mm long x 33mm wide x 18mm thick, tip of pick to back of handle appox. 180mm, length of handle 520mm, handle diameter 33mm.
