Brass and Ebony Mortise Gauge - click to enlarge.

Top condition oval Ebony head and brass stem gauge with two mortising spurs (one is perfectly movable by turning the scew at the top of the gauge). Made in England in the second half of the 19 century (probably around 1870). Signed “J. Allan”. As we never saw an old gauge in such a good condition, the price reflect the gauge condition.
