Catchings Miniature Anvil Collection

Swan Forge Anvil

Swan Forge Miniature Anvil

Photos provided by John Catchings, digitally processed by Jock Dempsey.

This anvil was detailed by John Catchings in the shape of an 80 pound English Alsop anvil from about 1800. He found it too costly to make and let Bill Gichner use the drawings. The pattern without the Swans was first manufactured by Bill as one of his advertising anvils for Iron Age Antiques. Later John found a swan belt buckle and had Bob Walkner modify one of Gichner's anvils as a pattern.

It is hand stamped on the finished face:

EST.   1979

This is a clean simple well executed design. I'd be very happy if I could produce such a work.

4-1/2" x 2-3/8"
1/8" broached hardy hole.
