HILL Late HOWEL Brass Back Saw - 8 inch *SOLD*

Code: 2590d

A very nice 8 inch brass back dovetail saw by Joseph Vaughan HILL of London.

HILL previously served as a foreman for Joseph HOWEL the London saw maker and his saws are usually marked, as this one, 'JV HILL LATE HOWEL LONDON', with a Star mark above, on the brass back.

Wonderfully shaped beechwood open or pistol grip handle with two brass split nut fixings.

Previous owner's stamps 'J.BURGESS' and 'F.BUTLER'.

The 8 inch blade is straight with all teeth (18 tpi) present and well formed, some very minor surface pitting and staining spots.

Approximately 133/16 inches overall length.

A great example of a 19th century saw.
