Item C1 - J. B. Addis (Sheffield) No. 4 Carving Gouge.

This highest quality shallow sweep carving gouge has a 1/2” edge length and a blade length of 4 ½ inches. The blade is tarnished but has no rust or pitting. Aside from its quality, this carving tool is greatly enhanced by the custom carving of its boxwood handle. The handle has a brass ferrule and is about 5 inches long, with a diameter of a little over one inch. It is deeply and expertly carved with a central four-petal flower on a bas relief stippled background. This flower is surrounded by concentric diamond figures . Above the flower are a string of “hanging”curved lines connected by dots. Below the central flower are a series of four faceted thumb holds, each marked with a central asterisk figure, and bordered the “sweeping” line motif from the top of the chisel. It is a masterful handle, and will be appreciated by any carver. Fine.
