Anvil Peter Wright ID

Recommended Posts


Has anyone seen a Peter Wright Anvil with a logo Carved in the side. If you look carefully there is a 1 marked on either side. There appears to be a B on the bottom even if it was an 8 which is 1 8 1 it does not match the weight of the anvil. Any help to Identify year of manufacture or other details would be appreciated.

I have a couple P.W.'s and have researched them a bit, and my guess is, that the logo (cross in shield) was carved in by the purchaser, as were the B's stamped into the base. The center number of the weight stamp has been carved away, when making the vertical cross line.
The weight is in British Standard. The first #, 1cwt = 112 pounds, 2nd. # 1/4 cwt. = 28 pounds, 3rd. # is pounds. My main anvil is stamped 1 0 9 = 121pounds U.S.
