Plymouth, Massachusetts Hardstone Collection - #9-1

Size: 1 7/8" long x 1 3/16 W x 1 1/2" tall.

Provenance: All items were found in the Plymouth, Mass area.

Condition: Varies. 7 celts and adzes, 2 grooved adzes (one also has multiple flutes), 2 mauls, and 4 axes. This set is a consignment, and you can email me for direct communication with the seller. How cool is it to have a collection dating back thousands of years found in the area where the first European settlers landed?

Price: $700. Reduced to move quickly!


Killer Ohio 3/4 Grooved Axe - #9-2

Size: 4 3/4" long x 2 11/16" tall

Provenance: Pickaway County, Ohio. Dan Schleich bought this at a farm sale, and considered it one of his best axes.

3/4 Grooved Green Quartz Axe - #9-3

Size: 4 1/8" long x 2 5/16" tall.

Provenance: Marion County, Ohio. Found by Ray Jordan.

Condition: Super. Green Quartz beauty with a great fluted bottom. If you don't know how rare a highly developed quartz axe is, then wait to see how long before you see another one of this calibre for sale.



Ohio Short Poll Axe - #9-4

Size: 4" long x 2" tall.

Provenance: Williams County, Ohio. Found by Marv Leatherman.

Condition: Super. One of Ohio's rarest and most desirable axe types. If you can't tell, I like stone tools in the smaller end of average size, but finely made. This one is no exception.

Greenstone Celt - #9-6

Size: 4 1/8" long x 2 1/8" wide

Provenance: Ohio. Bauer Collection.

Condition: Super. Heavy granite or diorite. High polish near 100% on one side. Other side shows pecking, but is also highly polished. Sides are squared off. Some bit chatter. On the scale of manufacture and feel, this celt sits in the upper echelon.



Mini 7/8 Groove Axe - #9-7

Size: 3 3/16" long x 2 3/16" wide.

Provenance: Ohio. Bauer Collection.

Price: $95

Condition: Super. This is one of the best 3/4 groove hammers I have owned. Highly developed (for a type that is very utilitarian). Small size really adds to the piece.

Price: $75
