2 eccentric Neanderthal scrapers. Jasper, height: both at 3". From Fontmaure, France, purchased from an older Dutch collection. The lithic on the left has what may be a chip missing at the top left in the photo. This is an old chip, well patinated. By it's form I do not think it was intentional to the piece and may be use-damage. The right side shows signs of use and was summarily knapped, hence it may have been made "in the field" for some specific function...

Fine examples both of Neanderthal tool making and the gorgeous jasper from Fontmaure. All date to approximately 80,000-50,000 BCE.

These were purchased at auction from an old German collection with no collection data. All are beautifully worked and patinated blades.
