Unusual Brass Axe Attachment


Recommended Posts

This one might be a stretch, but hoping someone can help me identify if this item is military or not?  It's 8 long and came inside an old military pouch, but thats all I know about it.  It unscrews so you can break it down if needed.

Thank you, that is actually more interesting than what I thought it might be.  Something to research for sure, appreciate the insight!  If anyone has an ideas on the age or origin of it, would welcome the thoughts.

That was the symbol of Mussolini's Italy.  Juts a wild guess, but maybe it was for a flag staff or something like that?

 

OK, AZ's post popped up while I was typing.  I will defer to his research skills.

Could it be a flag topper ? Looks like it has threads inside. The ones AZ posted have a marble base. 

Check out my eBay page, I sell military insignia and just about anything else I come across

Very interesting, I checked the base, it looks like threads inside, but its actually smooth.  Still it does look like it mounts onto something based on the bottom section and the open cavity there.

It's been around at least since Roman times. Next time you see the podium of the House of Representatives, you will notice 2 of them on the wall behind it.

Hi Starporium,  in the same section that you have posted this ' Unknown, can you identify ' forum member ' air mechanic has posted a number of patches there is a fasces shown on a patch in an image he has posted over on the left.  I have no idea on the patch possibly US it's not my period of collecting maybe another lead for you if you i.d. the patch.
