Old wooden hammer for shaping lead
This great wooden bossing mallet with its interesting shape is hand made and was originally used for hammering lead into shape. It has a wonderful patina and is very tactile. It has a light weight feel to it.
Bossing mallets for lead are still made in this shape and are used for shaping metal into the desired shape and surface. This hammer has an cone shaped head and long wooden handle. It shows plenty of signs of use and age. Am sure it could still be used practically but it also makes an interesting decorative piece, propped on a shelf.
A great gift for a vintage fan, diy enthusiast or for the person who has everything! The hammer measures 30 cm in length. The head measures 12 cm across.
