27 pound Italian "pig" anvil
This 27 pound Italian "pig" is of an earlier style than the 24 pounder posted. This one is circa 1870-1890's. It is forged, with some wonderful hammer marks and signs of manufacture on the underside. It is stamped "HB". This anvil has seen use, with some light dings in the face and some minor edge chipping. But overall it is clean with good rebound and ready for work.
