220 lb mid 19th Century German hornless anvil – Descriptiion

Here we see the maker’s initials WTH  clearly stamped on this side. Generations of blacksmiths hammered the top surface into a saddle and  wore the hardy hole smooth.  As a result the edges are 50% damaged. When hammered this anvil rebounds and rings well.  The surface is hard!  Call  Josh:   804 861 2788    Cell: 804 721 8100   email us  or contact us on Facebook

Back Side View

Here we see the elegant shape of this anvil and good/excellent condition of the back edge.  Indeed this is pretty incredible if we consider the amount of work  done on this anvil to saddle it so. In the end all this work did not damage this edge!  In the middle we see hand stamped information like this WB + 207. Typically this is mid 19th century. Specifically the 207 refers to German pounds (pfunds).  Call  Josh:   804 861 2788    Cell: 804 721 8100   email us  or contact us on Facebook
