The Vulcan anvil is a cheaper cousin of the Fisher Eagle Anvil. They were made from about 1875 until about 1969. It is a steel faced cast iron anvil welded in the mold by a proprietary process. This anvil was in near NEW condition having the original cosmolene. It would have been perfect except for some shallow cold chisle marks in the face. The base is10" X 11".

This anvil has a unique rolling stand with handles and tool racks. This doubles the weight of the anvil/stand combination.

This is another fine example of a small Vulcan anvil sent to us by Jeff King of Iowa. Note that the logo is about the same size as on the 160 pound anvil above but is a different carving.
