Hammer for an ax? Maybe ax head type splitting tool?  where you wouldn't have the handle in the ax just the maule maybe?  That's kind of what it looks like.

I suspect it's not for ironwork.  Might not have had as long a handle to start with either.  The curve in the face is interesting.  Ever seen a veneering hammer? Might be for something similar...

My thought would be for two man crimping of large seams like sheet metal boilers or tanks. The curved face would keep the corners from digging in and focus the strikers blows
