Great Expectations Antiques

Circa: 1912-20
Condition: Good+
Manufacturer: Stanley U.S.A. (Bailey)
Offering this good old smooth plane with several marks on it. On the cutter is marked "STANLEY NEW BRITAIN CONN. U.S.A." in the V-shape logo.  On the toe of the wood base is marked "STANLEY RULE & LEVEL CO. BAILEY  NO. 35 " the mark is a bit light, but can be seen. There is a "STANLEY" mark on the lateral level and "BAILEY" on the iron toe area. The wood bottom of the plane is in very good condition showing very little wear, no cracks. The handle and knob are also in very good condition with no cracks on any of the wood parts, we do note a small chipped off or dinged area at the top of the tote, as seen in photos. All metal surfaces are also in great shape, not rusty, clean, black in color, with most of the Japanning still intact. There is 90% of original Japanning on the cap cover also. There is some light pitting here and there on the cutter, and cap iron, but not in the cutting edge area. The cutter is sharp, and the chip breaker is in nice clean condition, no damage. We rarely see these smooth planes in this nice of condition!  Very nice overall!
