Help to dentify anvil

Recommended Posts

Hello, everybody. I want to buy these anvils. Can anyone help me to identify its manufactures & age. The little one has marks: on the one side there are 3 stars, on the other numbers: 5 3 9 1. It looks like Wilkinson or Mousehold. weight is about 160 lb. (65kg) length 23" height 9"

Another big one has no marks (currently I have only these photographs) weight is about 600 lb. (210kg) length 39.3" height 13.7", width 6.6"

The top one has done some work but is still useable, the stars could be a punch of some sort been driven into the side and you have to love people with welders that can't resist leaving blobs everywhere.

The big one looks like a SOHO pattern but the tool steel deck is missing?

Well the answers to your question may vary quite a bit if you are in Croatia, or South Africa, or Australia, or...  yet you didn't mention location.

I'm from Ukraine. The matter is that a lot of everything, including tools & anvils was taken out from Germany after the World War II in 1945. For example this anvil, which I've bought a couple of days ago. http://www.iforgeiron.com/topic/42701-hungrian-pre-wwii-cast-steel-austrian-style-church-windows-anvil-sac-mnosz1300-in-unused-condition-have-some-questions-about-it/
