New Eveson & Sons Anvil

Recommended Posts

So it turns out I'm an anvil collector.  Who knew?

Just picked up this 195# (1 2 27) Eveson & Sons:


This one appears to have been welded across the face and along one edge.  The rebound is good and consistent everywhere, though, and the tone of the ring doesn't change either.  I suspect the repair was done right and I'm not concerned with it.  I've found very little info on Eveson & Sons, though.  I know they were manufacturing in the mid-1800s and it looks like two of the sons took over the business in 1855.  Does anyone have any more info on them, or know how to date this one?  




The text above the anchor might be DH ROV or something close to it.  Or maybe something completely different. :)
