    Brass Battleaxe

    Hi all , new here.
    Have posted pics of this item & would like to know more about it.
    300mm long , 150mm wide , weighs 0.896gr.
    Obviously been used for something as lots of scrapes/ divits in the brass.
    Not so much interested in value but age , where , really the provenance.

    I think itís likely something like this - from the mid to late 1900s (Iím thinking 1970s for some reason).

    Hi Guys , thanks for the responses.
    Yes it has ornate detailing as in randazzo1 photo but that battleaxe is different completely in the handle patterning but the seller on Etsy , UAK mobile , has another battleaxe very similar to mine. I asked him about this battleaxe and his response was , that he was told by the previous owner it was made several decades ago , so that would support your theory. Upon hearing this i had a closer look at the 2 battleaxes & although his & mine bear striking resemblance there are 3 differences & once again in the handle. (other UAK mobile axe shown in photo) This could mean everything or nothing.
    Again mine is very aged & patinated & tons of useage/wear compared to the etsy ones , again that could mean everything or nothing. The provenance passed onto me for the axe i have is " was found under the floorboards of an old villa that had been pulled down several years ago" truth or not i cannot substantiate this.
    But im open to all suggestions , i have my own half theory at this stage.
    PS , my length measure was wrong , should be 330mm not 300mm , typo of older man haha
