This list is not all inclusive as many new anvil makers are constanly coming into business and small makers are still being discovered.
Brands of many modern farrier's anvils are almost impossible to keep up with.
Many anvils were made for resellers to be privately branded such as by Sears (Acme brand) and Montgomery Ward (Lakeside brand).
Often these anvils had no name marked on them permanently as the resellers had no way to do so.
They may have had paper labels, stencils or decals.
So if you have a no-name anvil it was probably made by one of the major manufacturers.
Besides brands there are types of anvils, London or English Spattern, Lièges pattern (French),
American pattern, double horned, German, Austrian,
farrier's, cutlery, sawyers, filemakers, jewelers, bickern, stake or stump and the scythe anvil or Dengelamboß.
Then there are cones and swage blocks
