MATHIESON Dovetailed Infill Smoothing Plane *SOLD*
A very good dovetailed smoothing plane by MATHIESON of Glasgow.

Also stamped 'STEEL'.
Fitted with an original MATHIESON 21/4 inch parallel blade iron with matching cap iron.

The back of the cap iron, lever cap and the rear infill blade iron bed are stamped '1'.
Wonderful rosewood infill retains almost all of its original lacquer finish with some crazing - please see images
There is an old hairline crack to the lower part of the rear handle but this does not appear to be all the way through as the lacquer on the inside of the handle has not split and the handle is firm and secure - please see close-up images
A few minor surface scratches, pitting and staining spots.
Faint previous owner's stamps 'A.GAILEY'.
71/2 inch sole length.
A fine example.
