Paleolithic period c.50,000 B.C. An attractive Paleolithic Neanderthal flint flake knife tool found in the 1950's/60's in Le Grand Pressigny, Central France and from an old French collection amassed in the 1950's/60's. A good sized Neanderthal tool, roughly lozenge shaped with the main cutting blade on the left side of the tool and a deep bowl of percussion on the top surface where the thumb of the right hand naturally rests for a firm and comfortable grip, Most certainly a right-handed tool as it almost impossible to grip in the left hand but fits beautifully in the right hand. The blade edge was then re-touched to sharpen it for use. A very nice example in a lovely toffee / honey coloured flint so typical of this area. A most tactile tool with some lovely surface smoothing, possibly from long term immersion in a river but otherwise intact and in excellent condition a most attractive old collection shiny surface patination, A pleasing Neanderthal flint hand tool, 87mm long x 63mm wide x 20mm at thickest tapering to blade c.3mm
