Lot: AL19-906
Maker: Illegible Mark
Length: 36.000 Inches
Condition: GOOD+
Estimate: $60.00 - $120.00
SOLD: July 19, 2019 A NICELY PAINTED MASTING AXE having an illegible imprint, which ends in "?illey". The axe has been nicely painted; however, someone has painted a nice axe. Were one to purchase the axe and remove the painting, a Great Debate would ensue regarding who had "improved" and who had "ruined" the axe. We propose to have a duel, at five paces, of the purchaser and the artist, using masting axes as weapons. We have known some great axe fighters in our day, but very few were also talented with brush and palette. May the best man win. ***(This item will be sold on Friday, July 19, 2019)***

This tool will be sold at public auction on July 18, 19 & 20, 2019 in Avoca , New York.
