ANVIL-ROSE

After praying for a wife one night, a blacksmith then dreamed a voice that instructed him to forge a rose. The voice told him that a beautiful lady would come to him when he finished the rose. But if should he lose the rose, the voice warned , the lady would leave him. Upon awakening, the blacksmith immediately forged a beautiful rose. As he struck his final hammer blows an incredibly beautiful woman appeared and pledged her undying love for him. Remembering the words of warning in his dream, the blacksmith wrapped the red hot stem of the steel rose around his anvil so that it could never be lost or stolen. These hand-forged miniature roses were wrapped around tiny desktop anvils while still glowing hot, then brushed with a brass brush to give them a golden glow.
