anvilfire image collection - Small Colonial Anvil

Small 18th Century Colonial Anvil

This is not one of the prettier early English anvils. The horn is narrow and the body has little grace. There are as many or more of these than of the more graceful types.

The outstanding feature of this anvil is the lack of rust pitting. It has been kept well preserved enough that the original forging texture is obvious.

Most early anvils of this type had very small hardy holes, usually accepting about a 1/2" (13mm) shank.
