1889 Bronze Washington Inauguration Anniversary Hatchet
1889-Dated George Washington Inauguration Anniversary Commemorative Hatchet, Cast in Bronze, with Openwork Bust Portrait of Washington, Choice Very Fine.
This is an authentic, very neat, large size 11.5" long cast Bronze Commemorative Hatchet, made for wall mounting, having an openwork bust of George Washington facing left in the blade portion. Along the length of the handle is the legend "Washington Inaugurated President Of The US - Apr. 30. 1789." A scarce and popular display piece, recalling the chopping down of the cherry tree legend. This piece was probably made in 1889 for the centennial of Washington's inauguration. These souvenir hatchets, in several variations, are known cast in bronze, iron and aluminum. A classic George Washington Inauguration Anniversary Commemorative souvenir.
