Item RB3 - Marples (Sheffield) 7 ˝” Sliding T-Bevel. 

This very high quality bevel square is stamped, “Marples  /  Sheffield” on the handle, and is likely the No. 426 “Best Improved” Sliding Bevel made by William Marples & Sons in the 1870s.  Typical of the genre this has a slotted fixing screw for the blade.  Unlike the more familiar Stanley bevels this has much heavier brass plating and a fine, smooth grain ebony handle.  The blade is 7 ˝ inches long, while the length of the handle is 5 inches.  The blade is tarnished and is slightly marred by a little pitting at the end of the slot.  Fine.
