Here is an antique stitching pony or "saddler's clam" in useable shape. The jaws are 30 inches long and 4 5/8 inches wide and attached with a butt hinge on the lower end, and the jaws tightened by a bolt and wingnut. On one end you will note a name, perhaps E.W. Fisher, some initials and some curious ciphers lightly stamped or cut into the wood.
Asking $50 shipped.

Probably better known as a stitching pony.
People usually make them, real cheap to buy new. Any provenance? Back story?
