These three axes almost look like ravens' beaks. They were once used to clear the forests of prehistoric Scandinavia. Mounted as they are, these ancient artefacts appear strikingly modern in their form. Height: of tallest as mounted - 7 1/2 inches Length: 12 1/4, 7 1/2 & 5 3/4 inches Condition: Very well preserved, all three examples are intact and with no restorations. Mounted on beautiful bronze display bases. Provenance: Formerly in the collection of Lars Otto Johan Holst (1863-1936), a veterinary surgeon who was active in Ronneby, southern Sweden from around 1887. Mr. Holst took a strong interest in the prehistory of ancient Scandinavia and he obsessively acquired throughout his career, forming one of the most magnificent collections of early Stone Age artefacts. He obtained these objects from around Ronneby, partly through gathering himself, and partly as payment for work done in his service as a vet between 1887 - 1929. Please note that the new purchaser will be provided with a copy of two photographs showing Mr. Holst in his office and his collection mounted on the wall. The new purchaser will also be provided with a colour image of the original board, where this artefact is clearly identifiable.
