English & Mersick Miniature Anvil

Grid is 1" (25mm) square behind, and 1/2" (13mm) lines below. No dimensions provided.

This is a nice old advertising anvil that appears to be nickle plated and painted, having the black Japan paint. It is one of the better pieces in the Sovie Collection. This one has a drilled pin hole (original?) and appears to have been used as an anvil. It is hollow which is not common in these small anvils.

English & Mersick was a manufacturer of carriage and automobile hardware in New Haven Connecticut established in 1860 and operated until at least 1930 or later. In later years they also made aircraft hardware. As a maker of trim and hardware they probably manufactured this little anvil in their own shops. There was also an English & Mersick (auto) Lamp and Foundry Co. in New Haven, 1907 but was not listed as a seperate business in 1930.
