Scarce Hatchet Cookie Cutter

Here is a large (7 1/2" by 3 1/2" by 1" deep) tin cookie cutter in the shape of a hatchet. The flat back shows signs of wear - lots of rubs and scratches. It has 4 medium sized air holes. The solder is tight.

"Although popular across cultures, cookie cutters found particular favor with the Germanic immigrants known as Pennsylvania Dutch, whose love of holidays and festive baked goods harked back to their homeland. Families frequently collected them in great numbers and passed them down from generation to generation." Early American Life December 2008

Although I have never come across this particular cookie cutter before, sometime around 1930 a similar hatchet cookie cutter (with a red or green knob handle) was made to help celebrate President's Day.
