Anvil I.D. Help, Please.

Recommended Posts

This anvil may be a Peter Wright but I can't be sure because it lacks the usual PW markings. Does anyone know if that firm produced anvils without the usual "PETER WRIGHT PATENT ENGLAND SOLID WROUGHT" markings?
It does have the stepped feet characteristic of PW's.
The only marks on this anvil are the stone weight digits in the waist 2 - 1 - 17 and also below that, centered under the 1 is an upper case "B". There are no markings on the feet. (standard size 12 oz beer can for scale).
Any insight would be greatly appreciated, Thank You!

To me , it does seem to have the lines of a Peter Wright.

Bokers sometimes had the flats on the feet as well. I have an anvil marked 'Buckworth' that I think is a Boker and it has very similar lines to a Peter Wright. The weight is stamped in pounds, not in the stone system.
