A good 18th century moulding plane with early features.

Features typically found on planes made in the first half of the 18th century include:

Wide and shallow flat chamfers with Phillipson style terminations.

Low sloped shoulder.

Full length fillet where the shoulder meets the stock.

Long wedge with rounded finial.

The ovolo mould has clear spring lines.

Although there are signs of embossed marks to the toe, these have been overstamped and, whilst we can pick out a couple of letters, we are unable to decipher the names.

The toe is also stamped '2' and has eight linear marks near the left edge.

Fitted with a good length TURNER blade iron with the embossed mark written 'TVRNER', the first example we have seen by this maker.  

A few pitting and staining spots, please see close-up images.

The plane is 97/8 inches overall length.

Previous owner's stamps 'JOHN ROBERTSON' and 'JOHN SHIRLAW'.
