Is it yours? Any other markings on it? What does it say underneath SOLID WROUGHT?
I second the motion about asking about it over at Garage Journal.

Are you going to use it? I've been taking blacksmithing lessons. Interesting but it takes a whole new and large set of tools, an anvil is just the beginning.

A garage without an anvil is just a storage facility. One with an anvil is a workshop.

Lots of anvils were made locally, as there were metal casting facilities in almost every city. So, you may never know who made it. But on the chance it was made, say, in the same State as you live, I would send / print some photos and ask a local auctioneer if he knows anything about it.

I was thinking the same when I read the title. I'm laughing that it looks just like an ACME brand one.

That little "ear" on the table means it's a farrier anvil (horseshoes)

It doesn't look more than maybe 50-60 years old.

Many anvils that are not solid wrought have a hardened face added. Those are worth owning.

I wonder if your is implying the face is NOT hardened?

The collectors market for anvils has really taken a dive lately, allegedly due to rising shipping costs.

In the second photo it looks like you can see the steel face on top.

I've never really considered buying one, but I also beat on stuff on my poor little vice...
Anvils were priced crazy here though, you could buy a new large vice for how much anvils were going for at farm auctions...
