Normally this pattern of anvil is seen in weighs of 1-2 pounds. To see a massive 12 pounder is a real treat. Forged, and a tidy job at that. It is marked, but I am unsure of the maker. The face is exceptionally clean and flat with extra crisp edges and clean horns. Great rebound too. This would be a great anvil for jewelers, watchmakers or tinkerers.
