Adam's brother bought this little anvil at a boot sale (flea market) for about £20.
It measures 6" from heal to point, 3.1/4" wide, and 5" from base to face not including spike.
Close inspection shows the weld seams and reveals that it was folded from one or possibly two pieces.
I would guess the age anywhere from the 1300's to 1600's, but more likely the earlier dates.
It is most likely European (maybe French) by its style but it COULD be English.
Very hard to tell on items this old as they get carried all over the world.
You see these things from Scandinavia to the Middle East.
In some places in the Middle East such tools are still in use even though hundreds of years old.
Anvils in that era were generally smaller than today due to the high cost of iron and steel.
So this could be a small shop anvil used for general work.
When mounted in an oak stump it would not be so portable.
There WERE larger anvils at the time but they were relatively rare.
