Description: Ancient Near East, ca. 1700 BCE. This is a round-socketed cast bronze adze blade, nominally a wood working tool, but probably made also to be used as a sign of wealth and prestige and a burial good. The patina on this piece is gorgeous, a deep blue green that indicates a high tin percentage in the bronze alloy. Size: 5.4" L x 2.1" W (13.7 cm x 5.3 cm)

Provenance: Ex-Estate of John Piscopo. Mr. Piscopo was one of the largest collectors of ancient weapons in the US with a collection that spanned all cultures, all ages.

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.

We ship worldwide and handle all shipping in-house for your convenience.
