Gorgeous Large Primitive Mallet with Five Fat Iron Nails

Regular price $75.00

Another old handmade tool that feels like pure sculpture to me, just gorgeous, and with these five old forged iron nails making it look like a giant handmade wood die (as in dice), and a bit like a face, too. Traces of old red paint on one side and white on the other, making for beautiful surfaces, and with, it looks to me, a name pressed in to the handle on one side. Solid and heavy, this could knock the heck out of anything, but also feel to me like quite a tender, empathetic thing.

12 1/4 x 5 3/4 x 3 7/8”, excellent antique condition, all the more beautiful in person.
