Set of 3 Moulding Planes by MARPLES & SORBY

Code: 2343

A tidy graduated set of 3 wooden sash ovolo moulding planes by MARPLES and SORBY of Sheffield.

1.) 1/2 inch moulding plane marked 'HIBERNIA WM MARPLES & SONS SHEFFIELD' with the Shamrock trade mark on the toe and stamped '1/2' on the heel.  Previous owner's stamps 'L.F.BARBER', 95/8 inches overall length

2.) 5/8 inch moulding plane marked 'HIBERNIA WM MARPLES & SONS SHEFFIELD' with the Shamrock trade mark on the toe and stamped '5/8' on the heel.  Previous owner's stamps 'L.F.BARBER', 95/8 inches overall length

3.) 3/4 inch moulding plane marked 'I.SORBY SHEFFIELD' with the Mr Punch trade mark on the toe and stamped '3/4' on the heel.  No previous owner's stamps, 95/8 inches overall length

Each is also marked with a double diamond stamp on the top of the stock behind the wedge mortice.  This stamp is beleived to belong to the plane maker/hand that was employed in the MARPLES factory.  The I.SORBY trade mark belonged to TURNER NAYLOR & CO until the early part of the 20th century when they became a subsidiary of William MARPLES & SONS.  We are confident that all three of these planes, from the same previous owner's tool kit, were produced by the same plane hand in the factory near the end of MARPLES wooden plane production in the 1960s.

Near full length blades irons.

A few minor surface knocks and scratches.
