Lyda-Ferdinand Collection - Church Window Anvil

Antique Church Window Anvil

This is probably a German (possibly French) anvil. It has very clean lines and has a small side exit hardy hole.


This anvil has a very small 3/8 - 7/16" (10 to 11 mm) side penetration hardy hole. These are punched and chiseled through the top plate and exit out the side of the anvil. The side opening is required so that scale and pieces of steel punched through the hole can fall out.

  • Dimensions:
    • Height 11" x Width 6" x Length 22" (280 x 152 x 560 mm)
    • Base = Length 18-1/2" x Width 8" (470 x 203 mm)

  • Weight: 312 lbs. (142 kg)
