Collectible George Washington Wood Toy Hatchet

  • Airport Way South, Seattle, WA
  • 0

This is a vintage wood toy hatchet or axe with a photo of George Washington on the blade. The photograph of President Washington is a bust and is surrounded by a golden orange star. The blade is black and the handle is a cherry stain. This hatchet is likely inspired by the famous story of a six year old George Washington who received a hatchet as a gift from his father and proceeded to damage or chop down his fathers cherry tree. The famous quote from who was to be the first president of the Unites States ensued, "Father, I cannot tell a lie: I cut the tree" or "I cut the tree with my hatchet." His father then praised him for his honesty. This story evokes a nostalgia of the formation of America and its founding fathers as well as the value and virtues of honesty. This toy hatchet could be used as a prop for a costume, as a piece of fun decor for a history buff or would be great for a history teachers classroom. This item measures 15.5" long x 7.25" wide x 1.25" thick.
