196lbs Wolverhamp anvil

Recommended Posts

Could that be Wolverhampton? There is a city in England with that name and it was a city with a lot of manufacturing . Just a thought though, and by the way Welcome to IFI. I always suggest reading this to get the best out of the forum. READ THIS FIRST 

Knowing where you are located may help with the ID of the anvil, hence the suggestion to edit your profile to show location.

PS: A good looking anvil you have, looks like she's ready to go to work.

Henry Rogers and Sons were hardware suppliers in Wolverhampton between 1830 and 1900. They would have sold the anvil but it may have been made by another local company. They did make engine parts so it is possible they made the anvil. They also made/sold safes. Their headquarrters was in Union St, Wolverhampton but they had international sales offices, and made or sold all sorts of metal and china objects.  The founder , William Henry Rogers was a well known successful businessman, involved in funding railways, and also made significant  benevolent donations in the area.
