Viking Iron Axe Head
Item Details
Description
Northern Europe, Scandinavia, Viking or Norse culture, ca. 8th to 10th century CE. A forged-iron axe head of a utilitarian form with a rounded triangular socketing shaft behind a vertical chopping blade. The minimalist design of the axe head suggests it was used for tasks such as splitting wood and shaping softer materials like mud bricks rather than for warfare. Lucite display stand for photography purposes only. Size: 5.125" L x 1.8" W (13 cm x 4.6 cm)

Provenance: ex-Starborn Creations, Sedona, Arizona USA; ex-private German collection, purportedly found in Lithuania

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.
