  1. I managed to pick this up on a recent trip to Iran.  It is manufactured by the Iran Potk Company which has been in business since 1984.  They make a wide variety of tools, including this miniature anvil, and a full size 24kg (53lb) and 50kg (110lb) anvil.  All look very similar to the Ridgid Peddinghaus style anvils.  Didn't get to try one out but appear to be good quality.  The mfg. lists them as cast carbon steel w/ a hardened face.

  2. H & I FORGEWORKS,

     

    Although it says WOO towards the bottom of the anvil, the placement of the stamp and the feet style do not look correct, I do not believe this is an ATTWOOD.  There also appears to be the name ??????KERS above it.  I have found that a lot of anvils up in Canada and Australia have either the exporter merchant name (England), or importer merchant name (Canada) stamped into it rather than the manufacturer (thus why it is in LBS and not Stone Weight).  Is there any stampings above it?


  3. As Thomas mentioned, it is right across the border of England.  It is nothing more then a tourist trap nowadays, complete with a tour bus of Japanese.  There are several other old English anvils in the 250lb range painted with the Gretna Green words in each of the rooms, a couple of old carriages and time period items.  I believe the tour to see the original anvil was around $10 USD.


  4. I have owned 1 Peter Wright with the X on the bottom of the base.  I also thought it was a "Factory Reject"...Sold it on Ebay as such and still brought the same price as a normal Peter Wright ($3-$4/LB).  The person who bought it was going to use it as is.

     

    If I remember correctly I even spoke with Postman about it and he said its a possibility of it being a "Factory Reject".  Nothing appeared out of the norm for its condition.
