Frequently referred to as a gunsmith's or clock maker's, vice or any number of specialty applications, the use of this handy old black iron hand vice was as broad as the imagination. Age to is set at variations from the American colonial / Revolutionary War period through use into the Civil War era with specialty references documenting existence of such hand vises as this on through each time frame. Examples such as this one are most accurately referred to simply as an artisan hand vice of the 18th through mid-19th century. Easily distinguishable from the post mid-19th century examples by virtue of design and construction, this little artisan hand vice remains in all original, functional condition and will lay in well with any number of specialty period artisan groupings. A nice period item without spending a lot of money.
