UNUSUALLY LARGE AND WELL-MADE DANISH NEOLITHIC CHISEL, c. 2600-2400.

A rare and large chisel, dating to Single Grave Period, 2800-2400 BC.

The chisel measure impressive 208 mm. and is perfectly balanced with a slighty curving shape. The chisel is unpolished and displays visible seams at each edge and some terrific knapping skills!

The chisel is both attractive and shows the fully developed tecnique from the period to it's max. Ex. Danish Collection, formed early 20th. cent.

The best large chisels we have handled in more than 8 years!

Condition: Choice, some very light wear to the bit, but othervise superb.
