This is one of those flat backed anvils that can be tiped on its side or heel end to use the "church windows" as shaping surfaces for armour or repousse'.
The foot and heel make stable feet to use the horn like a cone and the long curve between horn and foot for curved work.
This anvil has an unusual sloping full conical horn for that purpose.
Modern anvils should be so well designed.
