of Phoenix Foundry, Norwich

1794 Advert: 'BROWNE and MUNTON,
At the FOUNDERY, Green-Man Yard, King's-Street, Norwich,
BEG leave to inform their friends and the public, that they have now completed their works, and any favour conferred on them will be executed on the best terms, and with dispatch. They return thanks those friends who have kindly thought of them, and hope the delay their orders met with at first will be imputed to the difficulty attending a new undertaking of the kind.
The variety of articles manufactured in cast iron, would take up too much space to enumerate, the most common in use are, Drill Rolls, Plough Breaks and Ground Irons, Plough and Barrow Wheels, Gate Irons, Waggon Slades, Pig Troughs, Rain-water Pipe, Standards, Palisading, Chimney Irons, Chests and Closets, Sash, Clock and Scale Weights, &c. &c. Furnace Bars, and other articles to bear a great degree of heat, made iron of a much approved quality, every article which offers, to pattern and dimensions.
Turning and Boring in the best manner.
A quantity of Bolt-iron imported, well worth the attention of Smiths, on the lowest terms.
The best price given for old Cast and Bushel Iron.
All orders are requested to be directed to Browne and Munton, Phoenix Foundery, Norwich.'[1]
