Wood axe, made in Camp Petawawa, 1940-1942

Wood axe, made in Camp Petawawa, 1940-1942. Carved from one piece, the all-wood construction has an obvious patina, but its unclear if it's lacquer or use-wear.

This axe is part of a group of wood objects collected and preserved by the family of internee Girolamo (George) Capponi.

The axe along with other wooden objects in the collection, may have been made by Capponi himself. He had written to his wife asking for wood-working tools.
