Small Industrial Swage and Stand

Industrial Block on stand

Small 12 inch Industrial Swage and Stand:

12" square by 4" thick.
Stand 11.25 tall

This is a beautiful pair that looks brand new. The surface finish should be studied by current makers. THIS is what as-delivered blocks used to look like.

Neither piece has any manufacturers marks. However, the stand and the style of the block is very similar to Noyes Foundry, Green River blocks. A shortened version of the stand shown on their 1894 catalog listing would be a perfect match. The diagonal flat bar slots are similar to many later style blocks that are currently unidentified.
