Friend found this Anvil while Antiquing

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine found this anvil while antiquing. He knew I would be interested and contacted me. I know it's worn but boy does it have character. And the price was right at $150. I may keep it as is and just use it from time to time. My other anvil doesn't have a Hardy hole so this one will come in handy for that. The other option is to fix it but I don't think it would be worth the expense. If anybody recognizes this old girl and can provide info that would be helpful! I don't know looks like an anvil out of an old SEARS Roebuck catalog.

You have an early Fisher & Norris anvil.  Straight horn.  It was probably made in the late 1850s/early 1860s in Trenton, NJ.   

Do not attempt to repair it.  Fixing F&N anvils is almost impossible.  Enjoy it for what it is.  Consider what it has done in it 160 years.
