Large Indian Tomahawk Peace Pipe, decorated with very small brass tacks and square pins. Dark patina to the diamond-shaped wood body. Large axe/pipe head measures 8-7/8'' long with the blade measuring 4'' wide. Pierced heart-shape design in the center of the axe blade. There are small dot punchmarks around the outside of the heart-shaped piercing. Blade appears to be hand forged. There are carved lines for decoration at the base of the blade and on a triangular-shaped boss below the tobacco cup. Condition is very good, the wood showing a very dark patina with evidence of wear on the high edges. Brass tacks have a dark patina with some having light wear from handling. Axe head has an even dark patina with hammer forging marks evident, especially near the edge of the blade. Cutting edge, while not really sharp, does show some old grinding marks crudely done. The head is tight on the wooden shaft with no play. Tomahawk measures 18-3/4'' in length. Overall a very neat old tomahawk. This could be a real sleeper. Est.: $2,000-$3,000.
