A Flying Vintage Blacksmith

Here is a darling vintage winged blacksmith for you! The term 'smith' originates from the word 'smite', which means 'to hit'. The black color comes from fire scale, a layer of oxides that forms on the surface of the metal during heating. This anvil isn't made out of iron though. It looks like it's been sculpted from white chalky stone! french vintage postcards
