Cabinet Makers Float by HERRING
A good concave cabinetmakers float by HERRING.
Marked 'HERRING CAST STEEL' with a Crown trade mark. The initial on the mark is unclear however the brothers Thomas and Edwin Herring, more famous for their London made carving tools, manufactured a range of other edge tools and this float is probably one of theirs.
The cutting edges are 1/2 inch wide over a length of 23/16".
Good beechwood handle with brass ferrule.
No previous owner's stamps.
A few minor surface pitting and staining spots, please see images.
81/2 inches overall length.
