This type of anvil is called an "enclume de taillendier" (toolmaker's anvil).
Seeing a number of these in the museum, I believe they've had to be fairly common during a certain period in (a region of?) France.
The table is 705 mm (27.75") long and 150 mm (5.9") wide, the anvil is 360 mm (14.17") high.
The anvil has handling holes in the sides of the waist and a 20 mm hardy in one heel.
It also features a horn sticking towards the blacksmith.
There's a 25mm thick shield in the front above the church windows, which form a hollow in the main body.
The anvil front is decorated with chiseled lines and the shield is dated 1823.
