A group of 16 miniature moulding planes or thumb planes.
Pairs of No.2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hollows and rounds, a straight rebate or rabbet plane, square ovolo, astragal and centre bead.
The hollows and rounds and rebate are 4 3/16 inches long and stamped 'AW' on the toes. 11 of these have MARPLES blade irons fitted.
The three profile moulding planes are 4 1/4 inches long.
All appear to be professionally made, possibly in the MARPLES factory?
