Hi everyone!

i found some axes and I was wondering can anybody help me with their dating Happy?First picture is taken on the exhibition called "Dalmatinska Zagora - nepoznata zemlja" (Dalmatian zagora - unknown land" (actually is taken from this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32vK50y_610):

Upper two are unknown to me, especially the big one (maybe 15/16th century?).Lower two were already discussed on this thread:

And this picture is taken from one old magazine, it shows an Museum of city Čabar:



Axe is quite similar to the large example from exhibition about Dalmatinska zagora.Maybe they are examples of some local form of axes?Is there any analogies to them in rest of the Europe?

Can't really say about the axes, but the bust statue looks a lot like Vlad the Impaler...aka-Dracula. WTF?! ......McM

Well, I read that article a long time ago, but I remember that bust represent someone from the Zrinski family (lords of Čabar in past)...maybe Petar:

or Nikola VII.:

It's not a bust of Dracula Wink.

The big axe is obviously a weapon of war....the sickle looks more like a farm tool. But...in days of olde , when knights were bolde,,,,,,any farm tool could be taken to war. I'd love to see some better pics and find out a little history...... Surprised .....McM
