Hanging or Standing Splint Holder

N. European, 17th/18th c.

Iron. Blacksmith-made piece on a triangular, three-footed base (made from previously used sheet iron.) Splint holder still has good spring in it, holds a splint firmly. Just a no-nonsense, simple, functional piece with a good period look. It'll make you want the next power outage so you can use it. Wear to one foot, no restoration.

10-1/4" h, base: 4-1/2" x 3-1/2"
