From the Josh Greenwood Collection.
This beautiful little anvil is from the 17th ot 18th century.
Its shape is very graceful and there is a rare "S" marking.
This anvil lacks both a hardy hole and a pritchell hole (post 1830 feature).
These are indicators that this anvil was made prior to 1800 or as early as 1700 or the late 1600's.
