I Forge Iron

Anvil I.D., This one is very different!

Recommended Posts

Looks like a wrought-iron hornless anvil with a laid-on steel face to me. The face is shedding in one corner and is perhaps 1/2inch to 3/4 thick at the most. No hardy or pritchell holes. Estimate probably 18th century, maybe early 19th or late 17th. I don't see any evidence that this is for a water-hammer -- I think that period hammers used cast anvils. Wouldn't mind some better photos. I also agree that the description is a little off -- why would a decent smith need a horn to fit a shoe? Oh right. it says 'farrier'! ;-) (Just joking, all you farriers out there.)
