help with an anvil

Recommended Posts

I think this is the week for finding possible anvil purchases....had the earlier post about the cast one, now I have been offered a really nice colonial anvil. Here's the photos I was sent from the guys phone. Any ideas on maker? There is a hint of writing on the side, but doesn't look like "Mousehole" to me. Any ideas on make? I am going to look at it Thursday. It's seems to be a nice early one (no pritchel). Thanks for any and all help.

Yes; I would say that it is definitely made by one of the several hundred english makers who made anvils like that!

The hint of writing might narrow that down considerably! We often "guess" mousehole as that is one of the most common makes to make it over here to America; but others did as well. BTW are you *in* America? Canada, Australia, South Africa seem to have more different english makers represented.
