Up for sale is a stunning 214 pound “Bavarian” pattern anvil. Carried on it’s brow is some wonderful scalloped border ornamentation, as well as a date; 1841.
As we have gone over before, each region had their own pattern of anvil. Swiss, Polish, Bohemian, Bavarian, North German, South German… the list goes on and on. Each anvil had it’s own distinct style, traits, and sometimes even function.
So, what makes up a Bavarian pattern? The list below is the typical makeup of one. One might call them an extreme and grotesque version of an Austrian pattern. They carry many of the same features, but more severe in every way. -A heavily angled “brow” jutting out from the face
-Extra deep and grotesque “church windows”
-Stepped feet, usually 2 feet, but sometimes 3. The feet will flare out wider side to side. -They can be hornless, or have one round horn. In rare cases, they can have two horns.
This anvil is for sale; interested persons please email us at email@example.com for pricing. We can ship reasonably, and local pickup is always welcome.
