Anyone recognize this unit ? Its 21" across, from the bow to the stern.

From what I can make out, its says "Wright" and below that it says "Patent". Maybe a triangle before the name wright. I could not see any markings on it, till I got it home and went at it with a wire brush.

This follow me home recently, no suckage award on this one, I had to step up to the plate to get it purchased. Not flipping it, but proud to own it, this is residing on a recently acquired welding/fab table. My current anvil, is one made out of a rail road tie. This is quite an upgrade.

This unit feels like it just over a c-note in weight. Im guessing by its age that it is an import.

Sorry, after much screwing around, I can not get the images to open when you open the page ?

BK it must be an inkfrog thing, I tried as you can see by the edit shown in your post and they just wouldn't show.

Added if it is a Peter Wright some nice info in this post.
