This is another in a series of interesting ancient bronze axes recently acquired from a private collection. It has a deep red patina typically associated with early, high copper content tools and weapons. It is very solid and stable with only minor losses to the surface. Axes of this type are often associated with Amlash or Luristan cultures but this one has some interesting features not found on most. The edges and points are very square and the vertical blade has a groove all along the top edge. This is a rare and interesting type that belongs in your collection! It weighs 586 grams and measures 15 cm along the top edge.
