Unusual ATKINS & CO Brass Back Tenon Saw - 14 inch
A good 14 inch heavy brass back tenon saw by ATKINS & CO USA.
Unusually the brass back is unmarked on this saw but the heavy brass back is bevelled in the typical ATKINS way.
Fruitwood handle with three brass fixings including the triple A medallion marked 'E.C.ATKINS & CO INDIANAPOLIS.IND PAT. DEC. 27 - 1887'. Also a little unusual as the top fixing goes through the brass back.
No previous owners stamps.
The 14 inch blade is straight with all teeth (approx' 14 tpi) present and well formed.
Some surface pitting and staining spots.
19 inches overall length.
