Grid is 1" (25mm) square behind, and 1/2" (13mm) lines below. No dimensions provided.

Many in the blacksmithing community know Gill Fahrenwald for his annual blacksmithing calendars that he has been publishing since 2000. But he also makes miniature anvils.

"Loaded for Bear" desktop curio anvil. Finished face and sides.

Hay-Budden Manufacturing Co. Brooklyn NY model anvil. Unfinished brass casting.

Note that these are NEW and not made by Hay-Budden who went out of business in 1928, nor are they made from an original Hay-Budden. While to the untrained eye all of this type anvil looks like another this one has a thicker heel and shorter horn than actual Hay-Budden anvils. The Bill Gichner 2001 anvil is a much closer representation.

Bill Gichner Hay-Budden

This one, made from the same master pattern is cast in iron with J. Deere 1937 raised letters. Other than cutting off the sprue and grinding the base flat this is another unfinished anvil.
