Salvaged wooden lead bossing mallet
This intriguing wooden bossing mallet is hand made and was originally used for hammering lead into shape. It has a wonderful patina and is very tactile. It has a nice weight to it. This hammer has an oval 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.
The hammer measures 30 cm in length. The head measures 12 cm across.
