This vintage, miniature handle was a sample that a salesman would have used to show a prospective customer. Generally the salesman would have an assortment of handles for tools and garden implements in a case or folding pouch. These would demonstrate the shape and quality of their product. This type of handle would have been used for a pick or other tool that would not use a wedge in the handle. It still has its original label which reads; Excelsall - Genuine Hickory - O.P. Link Handle Co. - Salem, Indiana U.S.A. - with a chain link design bordering the paper label.
It measures about 12" long and is in very good condition including the paper label.
