c.300,00 to 200,000 B.C. An excellent and attractive Paleolithic (Acheulian) hand axe found in Fort L'Ecluse, Eastern France on the 31st May 1943 and from an old French collection amassed in the 1940/50's. Expertly fashioned from a most attractive honey coloured flint and obviously submerged in water at some time as it now possesses a gentle smoothing to the percussion ridges, making it a most tactile and pleasing piece to hold. The axe is bi-facially worked but with a distinct upper "dominant" surface, and a flattish butt end which sits perfectly in the palm of the hand thus facilitating a firm and controlled grip of the axe for use.Totally intact and in excellent condition with lovely tactile feel to it, old collection number label on underside and old inked inscription on butt end citing "L'Ecluse 31.5.43",  a most appealing Paleolithic hand axe with lovely colour and surface ageing,
