Description: This is a folk art cookie cutter in the shape of an axe or hatchet from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania circa 1800s. The axe or hatchet design was made as a celebration cookie cutter and has a symbolic meaning. The shaped cookies would have been made at the bakery, for "Bury the Hatchet Day" or for "George Washington's Birthday". It was an old tradition in the northeast for political rivals to hold a day celebration after an election, to end any hard feelings between candidates. It was called "Bury the Hatchet Day". The cookie cutters were handmade of sheet metal or tin. The axe or hatchet cookie cutter has a flat back with two large finger holes for stamping, and three smaller air holes, for release of the cookie dough. The axe or hatchet cookie cutter is large in size with the walls of the cookie cutter being very deep. This cookie cutter was used by a bakery and would have been used to stamp out cookie dough quickly.
