One of my vices is vises: 1885 portable bench vise

This lovely little bench vice includes an integral anvil, and an unusual curved shape to the sliding jaw. Although it has an 1885 patent date on it, I couldn't find it indexed on google patents.  However, a post on The Practical Machinist did clear up the mystery.   The patent was issued to one George A. Colton of Syracuse, New York.
