Item RB3 - Marples (Sheffield) 7 ˝” Sliding T-Bevel.
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.
Price - $40.00.
