Help with Markings

Recommended Posts

Looking for some help.  Bought this anvil with the back cracked off.  It has markings but I can't seem to figure out who made it.  There is a large M on it, and I can see "son & s" but can't make out the rest any ideas, thanks for the help!

the lower stamping reads to me as Stourbridge, a town in Black County, west of Birmingham (and near Dudley - a major center of anvil production in the UK.)

I've done some internet searching and found a listing for an Eveson & Son's anvil on 'Worthpoint' (an antique price tracking site, possibly for ebay?) Anyways with what I can gleam from your pictures, the info on that site meshes with the manufacturer and location.
