Good Day,

Thank you fine Sir,

 

How do you enjoy the little gaffer...

to be honest I may officially let it rest for now , the small ones are tough to find so hold on to that beauty !!!  

there isnt any info (or very little) in the Anvils in America book for history on it either

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?
