Identify my anvil

Recommended Posts

The style with the heavy body and narrow "sharp" feet indicates that it was probably made in England; can you tell if the pritchel hole was punched or possibly retrofitted by drilling later?

If it's punched I would say after the 1820's if it's a retrofit pre 1820.

There were hundreds of anvil making shops in England; most pretty unknown so unless there are stampings it can be hard to narrow it down.

I happen to have two of them one 165lb the other is 125lb. One of the members a few months ago said he thought they were called mouseholes. Niether one of them have any distinquishing markings on them all I know is the 165lber sat in a field for well over a hundred years before the man I purchased it from picked it up. (He made a lamp out of it) It is my primary anvil now.
