    Here is a 7 1-2" aqua glass tomahawk with sculpted warrior chief head on the blade part, from Degenhart Glass (1947-1978). This came in several colors including purple, which I unfortunately broke :(

      I kinda winced at the part, "I broke it"!
      So sorry :(
      This aqua color though is beautiful, so nice replacement!!
      I love the carved warrior in the blade, very cool piece!

      Don't you hate that?! Breaking something you really loved?! :/
      This little glass axe is a rather unusual piece, its quiet ominous actually trying to imagine this being thrown through the air and what a pretty blue blur THAT would make!! :P
      Even small, this little tomahawk makes for certainly a deadly eye-catching piece.

      Very unique piece! That color is really pretty-to bad the other was broken :(
    5. iggy iggy, 9 months ago
      Very cool glass piece! Too bad about the purple one.

      Oh Jenni, sorry to here about you breaking the Purple one, this one is very nice though, I've never seen one until now. I have a couple EAPG ones with Sayings on them, from different companies, but yours is the nicest! :^)

      Many thanks to all for the thoughtful love

      Hi Thomas, isn't it about time I veered off animals a bit lol! I also love the Old West esp the classic movies, and this tomahawk design really appealed to me. Wonderful comment, thank you so much

      Thanks Eileen, yes it was heartbreaking the first purple one went smasheroo as I don't have many clear purple glass items and it's my fave color. I am always grateful for your fabulous compliments & support

      Yes Lauren it is really awful to break a nice item, I had just bought the purple and was fiddling around whether I could stand it up on a plate rack for photos, it flew off and broke in half! I told myself, probably the vintage age had something to do with it, then quickly located the aqua online and was very relieved. You're so right the Old West axes were ominous, there was a TV show yrs ago called Daniel Boone, and the main character threw one of these & split a tree in the opening scene, they had pretty crude but effective weapons back then. Great comment as always, thanx!

      Glad you liked this MrsT and appreciate the kind words about my broken one, don't know about you but I've had occasional glass & ceramic casualties, so I try not to handle things too much & place them on shelves right away, but then there's always picture taking day ha!

      Thanks iggy I'm really glad you liked this, thought this might appeal to my CW guy friends and fellow cowboy movie fans - you can just imagine that chief with headdress staring down a cavalry officer :) Thanks too about my broken purple one, truth told it was a bit nicer deep purple with more definition. Oh well

      Many thanks Bill for the super compliments and understanding about my broken tomahawk, it's not even the value of the piece, it's that they're often one of a kind due to age, searched all around and no luck finding a purple replacement. The other colors available didn't appeal to me, a brown and deep blood red - although the latter was probably apropos for an axe lol!

      It's such a sweet, lovely color, I was hoping you were going to say it was a Peace Pipe instead of a hatchet!
    9. Newfld Newfld, 9 months ago
      Thanks Watchsearcher for the cool comment, you know looking at this piece again, if it didn't have the blade & they put feathers there it could have easily been a peace pipe! Guess Degenhart was going for something more dramatic lol

      Many thanx Sean for the kind love, you are always in my corner and it's so greatly appreciated :)

      Glad you liked this GeodeJem, thank you very much

      Newfld, thanks for addressing my comment that it looks like a peace pipe to me.
      I didn't think my imagination was running away with me, so I did a quick Google image search of American Indian peace pipes and found many that have the blade and pipe together.
      I like the message that the blade/peace pipe together would have had to the parties (former enemies, now friends) smoking it.
    11. Newfld Newfld, 9 months ago
      Cool Watchsearcher to learn the peace pipes had hatchets, perhaps this original design WAS meant to be a peace pipe, but over time it is always called a tomahawk - I totally agree, think it is a wonderful message of the Old West enemies coming together as friends :)

      Many thanks clockerman and Pascale for the very thoughtful love, I am glad you liked this kinda different piece
