Up for sale is an antique mahogany and brass carpenter's level with a double vial window on top showing a single vial filled with clear liquid. Notice the beautiful cut out scrolled brass work, the two recessed circular windows, and the thick brass quality bindings at the bottom edges (photo 3). The eight brass screws are all original to the level. This fine level was signed by the maker with what looks like the profile of a knight impressed into the brass face.
The owner's initials, L.G.R, are impressed into the brass on the opposite side of the glass vial. This pocket size, 6 inch level is a wonderful example of the fine carpentry tools made in England during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Size: 6" long Condition: good, one small mar in the wood and brass beside and under the first screw (5th photo)
Ruler is not included in the sale.
