Title Mason's hammer
Catalog Number 1993.8.268
Date c. 1900
Material(s) Iron/Wood

Description This is a Mason's hammer that is made of wrought iron and wood. The Hammer head has a straight peen and a narrow head. The head probably has steel welding on. The handle is secure through a round hole with three metal pins.
Notes This is an interesting case. It's also possible that its a blacksmith's cold or hot chisel, but it would be odd to find one of these without hammer marks. (MH)
