Remarkable Gunmetal French Ornate Plane. (32247)


A remarkable gunmetal plane with a 5/16” thick steel sole, the plane came to me from the historic town of Toucy Yvonne in North Central France. The front nose is the shape of a typical French gallows bracket and the rear of the bracket allows your thumb to sit comfortably whilst the rear handle is a typical French helmet shape. The steel plate must be fixed through the plane as there are three steel pins one one front nose one behind rear handle and one behind the strange looking frog mechanism, I cannot find any marking on plane nor the iron that is only 1.1/2” in width the length of the plane measures 9.5/8” whilst the width at the mouth is 1.7/8” I’ve not seen anything like this and wouldn’t think I will again. Email if you would like any other information.

Price is inclusive of postage to mainland U.K.
