Determining the max wattage of a transformer

I have a low voltage transformer that was in the house when I bought
it. It doesn't doesn't have any exterior markings at all, so I'm not
able to know the model or wattage rating for the unit by looking at it. Is there any way to determine the watt output of this unit?

Thank you.

Unfortunately no. Is there any history to the transformer, maybe something near it when you found it, was is hooked up to something... etc...

I see, sorry your the same guy with the lighting question and the Hunter Pro-C. Most low voltage lighting transformers (professional series that is) are rated to a maximum of 300 watts per common. Can you describe what the transformer has for terminals, describe it's craftsmanship (what it is made of) and etc....

The weight of the transformer might be a clue - compare it to units of known wattage.
