This tiny rosewood mallet or gavel has a head that is only one inch long with a face diameter of ½ inch. The finely turned decorative handle is 3 inches long below the head. It is a delicate miniature tool of the highest quality and craftsmanship. A contrasting edge of sapwood at the bottom of the head adds a contrast to the heartwood that makes this little mallet a real gem. It is a great tool for the discerning collector. Fine.
