Antique SJ ADDIS Gravel Lane Curved Carving Gouge - 7/8 inch
A good early SJ ADDIS curved carving gouge.
Marked 'SJ ADDIS 20 GRAVEL LANE' with the Square and Compass trade mark on the top of the blade and 'SOUTHWARK LONDON'on the underside.
Believed to be circa 1853 - 1863.
Not marked with a sweep number but a good match to a London pattern No.15 sweep.
Good octagonal hardwood handle, small split but firm and secure, please see close-up image.
Previous owner's stamp 'C.W.DUNNETT'.
A few minor surface pitting and staining spots, please see images.
101/4 inches (260mm) overall length.
A very nice example of an early carving tool by ADDIS.
Will require sharpening/honing before use.
