Set of 10 Wooden Side Bead Moulding Planes by VARVILL *SOLD*
A fine group of 10 wooden side bead moulding planes by VARVILL of York.
Sizes: 1/8, 3/16, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 7/8 and 1 inch.
Each is marked 'VARVILL & SONS EBOR WORKS YORK' on the toe with the relevant size stamped on the heel. Apart from the 5/8 all are also stamped 'BEAD' on the heel.
All are marked 'HB' within a heart on the toe, presumably a previous owner's mark? The 3/16 and 1/4 planes are also stamped 'E.HEATH' on the heel.
The two smaller sizes are fully or solid boxed with all others boxed.
All of the boxwood is in very good condition with no cracks or splits.
Some minor surface pitting spots.
These planes appear to have had very little use with near full or full length blade irons and original wedges.
91/8 - 91/4 inches overall length.
