This small piece is a vintage watch fob advertising Hibbard Spencer Barlett & Company's O.V.B. Tools, Cutlery & Paint. The O.V.B logo is on one side of the axe head with their slogan; Our Very Best is the Very Best. On the other side it also has the logo and says; Highest Quality Special Silver Steel - Hibbard Spencer Barlett & Co - State Street Bridge - Chicago. Made by the Whitehead Hoag Company, it is nicely detailed. There are two holes at the top which probably took a chain so it could be hung from a watch chain.
It measures about 1 1/2" in length and 15/16" at the widest point. It is in nice condition with minimal wear. There are some light scratches and one area of pitting.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
