A fine model of an axe evoking the apocryphal tale of Washington chopping down a cherry tree, made from the wood of an elm tree at Washington’s encampment location when he made his famous crossing of the Delaware. The model measures 7.5″ long and with the head measuring 3.5″ wide, likely carved circa early 1800s. A stained and torn note is affixed to one side of the axe head, in part: “G. Washington Hatchet Relick from old Elm tree under whi[ch] he encamped his army 1777 [sic 1776].” In fine condition, with a chip to the blade area of the axe head. RR Auction COA.
