Gargoyle Anvil

Recommended Posts

I bet this used to belong to a bladesmith! D. Gentile how far are you from Nuremburg? This beauty is in a museum there.

No, I can't see it now. :(

 

And I'm really curious about a gargoyle anvil. I have a great fondness for both.

I can't see the picture either, but I'm guessing that it's this anvil.

I spoke with one gentleman who said that is was a smaller anvil, and that the display had silversmithing implements with it.

 

Whoever used it, I agree that it's really cool. I'd love more information on it, too

That would have gone quite nicely with the Baby Balrog forge.

You know the thought did cross my mind, I have an old sawyer's anvil 13 inches long 6 inches wide, 13 inches tall and about 400 pounds... but my wife would kill me though! she wanted to use it as a table base! I said Nooooooo......

 

What a killer anvil! I'd like to go to that museum for a week or so!

I was told that it was a silversmithing anvil and was on the smaller side. I'd love better pictures, as well, but have yet to find any. I don't remember where I got this one. Actually, I'd love to have several anvils of this style. :D
