1/2 inch JB ADDIS No.7 Sweep Straight Carving Gouge
A good 1/2 inch straight carving gouge by JB ADDIS of Sheffield.
Marked 'J.B ADDIS & SONS SHEFFIELD 10 PRIZE MEDALS' on the blade. Also stamped 'ENGLAND'.
Not marked with a sweep number but this gouge is a good match to a No.7 London pattern sweep.
There is a small surface pitting patch 11/2 inches away from the cutting edge.
Lovely boxwood handle with brass ferrule.
Previous owner's stamps 'A.E.WALLINGTON'.
911/16 inches overall length.
