Exceptional Rare FISHER'S Patent Bevel - Disston & Morss – 1868
PAT. June 23, 1868
Copy of patent included
Excellent example of a very rare and desirable patented inclinometer / bevel. W. T. Fisher's June 23, 1868 patent. Manufactured and marketed by Disston & Morss.
The patent as described: "Combining within a single instrument several tools, namely, a bevel square, right angle square, plumb and level."
It is well made and very attractive, combining the beauty of rosewood, brass and steel. This example is 100% complete and in perfect working order. There is no consequential damage of any sort. The level vial is intact and original. The blade remains dead straight but the markings are weak. It has been lightly cleaned to high collector standards.
The brass has NOT been polished. The Brass, Steel and Rosewood have all acquired that rich dark patina that one would expect of a tool from the American ~Civil War era!! Among the rarest and easily the most handsome bevel gauge out there, these fascinating Fisher's Bevels seldom come on the market. Especially not in this condition!
Don’t miss out on this one as you may be waiting months or even years for another opportunity to add one to your collection.
