A Wonderful Collection of Miniature Planes
21st March 2017
Sometimes you just never know 'what's in the box' and this small unassuming wooden box certainly reveals an unexpected surprise.
Packed full with 27 rosewood and boxwood planes plus a few squares and templates. All apparently produced by the same craftsman.
There are pairs of hollows and rounds, smoothers plus tailed and compassed rebate and t-rebate planes.
Very similar to the coachmakers' planes that appear reasonably regularly but these are the first we have seen on such a miniature scale.
Produced in a mixture of dark rosewood, boxwood and ebony, making the most of the contrasting colours.
A fantastic 'one off' group from a private collection.
Enjoy the photos.
