18th Century Antique Native American Trade Axe Tomahawk:
$29

6 1/2" Long x 4 1/2" High x 1 3/4" Wide

Antique fur trade era axe dating from the mid to late 18th century, circa 1740-1780. Quite similar to those illustrated in numerous volumes on fur trade era artifacts, notably Lar Hothems book on the subject.

Trade axes were one of the primary goods used by French and English traders during the period. Axes would be valued against a certain number of fur pelts, most furs being exported back to Europe where they were used in the booming hat production of the time.

All hand forged with an inset steel blade, this particular example is fine in the fact that it is signed, not once but in triplicate by the maker, who apparantly used their (or their company) name of PPC (said C maybe used for "Company").

As you can see this piece has some wear and signs of use from age. Take a moment to view the photographs to see individual details.

Just a great relic of the fur trade, found right here in Upstate NY.

Up for a week with .

Thanks for visiting The Country Tin!
