Maison de l'Outil Collection - Unusual Old Anvil

FRANCE French enclume

Unusual Old Anvil with decorative features

French Anvil molding trimmed feet and center arch.

It is to my opinion (Stefaan) one of the oldest in the museum. There aren't handling holes or a hardy hole in this anvil. It's 590 mm long (table 285mm, part of the square horn is missing), 140 mm wide table, 260 mm high. It's got some interesting features, like the shallow church windows (a rib on top of the body, no depression), the four "feet" on which it stands, making it look like a higher, more primitive version of the more recent French/Italian anvils with four feet.
