Brand of this anvil

Recommended Posts

So I got ahold of this anvil from my friends at the farm, and they let me borrow it. I dont know what brand it is, I was thinking one of the Fisher varieties. It has some sort of red coat underneath the rust, I dont know if that has to do with anything. It has a big chunk taken out of one of the edges and the step is all beat up, but other than that the rebound is good and has a nice ring to it. I would like some help figuring out the brand name. I forgot to mention it weighs around 100 pounds.

Not a Fisher. Looks kind of Mouseholey, or another older English brand. Looking at how close the pritchel hole is to the rear, I'm wondering if that was user- added at a later time. If that's the case would put the mfg date pre 1830ish. Never the less, is is a well used older English. If any ID or weight stamp still exists, it generally would be on the other side, horn pointing right.
