Also called a doloire, it is a weapon which was made in a variety of forms. They were provided to wagoners who supplied armies in battle. The logistics of war are easily overlooked, but when thousands of men meet on the battlefield, massive amounts of supplies support them and those manning the wagons are subject to attack. These axes, made in both one hand and two hand form, were designed to be used as weapons as well as tools. It is 16” overall with crescent edge bit with five marks, including a maker’s mark. The socket bears additional marks, lightly struck. The wood haft is original to its period of use.  A charming example of a rare variation.
