Antique 6 1/2 Inch Brass Bound Rosewood Level, Stratton?, No Reserve:
This sale is for an old wooden level, as pictured.
Description: Body is rosewood bound with brass. Dimensions are6 1/2 by 1 1/2 by 1 inches. The brass strips along the corners of the long edges are5/32 inchwide. There is one vialin the center of one edge to indicate level and another vial in one end to indicate plumb. The other end is covered with a brass wear plate.
There are no markings of any kind on this level, but it appears to be very similar to levels made by the Stratton Brothers in Greenfield, Mass.
Condition: Uncleaned and as found. Complete and intact with all the original parts. No maker's or owners' marks. Both vials are intact with bubbles, but they have not been checked for accuracy. There are no holes, chips or cracksin the wood, but there are many small dents and scratches in the wood and the brass that would be expected of an antiquetoolof this typethat has been used but not abused.
I am not an antique tool specialist, but I can try to answer questions.
