I can say that all material comes from North Antrim and North Londonderry. This core axe has a provenance which will be available to the buyer.For dimensions see the scale on the scans which should b examined carefully - this was not easy to photograph Please note that my entire private collection was examined, recorded and evaluated by staff of the Ulster Museum, Belfast in the 1990s Condition: Excellent
