Always good for a laugh!  

OP, that's a good anvil.  Happy hammering.

Hope you have read about not grinding, milling or welding on the face of your anvil. It looks to be in great shape and hammering hot steel will polish up the face.

3 Soderfors for the elven kings under the sky

7 Hay Buddens for the Dwarves in their halls of stone

9 Peter Wrights for mortal Men Doomed to die

1 Nimba for the dark lord on his dark throne

In the land of smithing where the coal smoke flies

Lets not forget Clinker and Scale. They're demon inclusions that can't be ignored!

Hahaha, im picturing a couple hobbits lugging a 400lb anvil that's almost as tall as they are to a volcano to weld on a new faceplate and mill the edges, avoiding NOSguhl and the ASOrcs.(Nasty hobbits's will ruin the precious!!)

What about some of the heros of the story? Stryker the ranger, legvise the elf, boraxomir of the iron city, and flatter baggins.

The feet dont quite fit the mousehole profile. It's also missing the deep dots between the English hundredweight markings.

It is a Mousehole. You can still make it out some on the side. The feet look like those on mine. The dots are visible as well.

When anybody tells you that their anvil is the undisputed king of anvils---just smile and nod and back away slowly and hope the lads with the special coat with the extra long sleeves are handy!

Too right because mine is the undisputed King of all the anvils.

(Could the top be smoothed any?)

I'm betting that in the day that Peter Wright and Mousehole owners were just like Chevy and Ford owners are today.

Likely so, and just like the Ford guys today, the Mousehole guys would have been right. Chevy for show. Ford to tow it there.

Everyone knows you need the Wright anvil to do good forging on!  I wouldn't william FOSTER  the misconception that might trap a new smith with a Mousehole...(Actually I love the massive sweet spot on Mouseholes; just haven had one come my way yet...)
