This plane would have been in the hands of a French craftsman more decades ago than we can begin to guess.
It is an adjustable rebating plane with just the right amount of brass fittings to contrast beautifully with the warmth of the walnut stock.
It is undoubtedly a collector's item but, dare we say, in the right hands it would be a wonderfully decorative item equally at home in a cabinet or on a shelf.
Some worm, of course, but no more than you would expect of an item of this age. So just how old? Well, we're not experts in dating tools, but surely the threaded wood clamps means it goes more than just a bit of a way back.
"No cord nor cable can so forcibly draw, or hold
so fast, as love can do with a twined thread."
Robert Burton (1577-1640)
Length: 22 cms
