Gouge with nozzle.

No further indications related to the find circumstances are known. The object presents one of the old findings from Sanzeno which were found by the local inhabitants at the end of the 19th century in Sanzeno. The major part of these findings were acquired by the Tyrolean State Museum in the course of the turn of the century, hence the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century.
The present object is similar to SZ-25 gouge which bears also characters.
However, compared to the description in PID, the attribution is uncertain and arguable.
