This offering is for a spectacular early 19th century hand wrought iron clamp. The clamp exhibits the truest form of American folk art. That of taking a mundane every day object and elevating it to a work of art, by the simple desire of the maker to do something above and beyond what is required for basic it's use. To that end the anonymous smith that made the clamp formed the handle in the shape of a wonderful large heart. The clamp has a beautiful deep brown surface patina with no apologies.
