An exceptionally large mid-European iron axe, Germany or Austrian, c. 1600 AD.

The axe looks almost like a helbard but with the huge blade ending in a pointed tip at the top. Early type with a long closed socket. The axe is finely decorated and with several nice deep makers stamps.

Very attractive and impressive!

Size: c. 48 cm.

Provenance: Danish Private collection of Grethe Pedersen, Ledøje, Denmark, ca. 1950-1997. Purchased at antique dealer Ole Jensen, 1960s.
