Item MA22 - Bemis & Call Co. Wing Outside Calipers. 

This set of outside calipers are clearly marked, “Bemis & Call Co. / Cast Steel.”  While Bemis and Call was principally known as a major maker of wrenches in the 19th Century, they did for a time manufacture hardware and tools—particularly calipers.  This example is is a tough one to find being relatively large (12” high, opening to a maximum gap of 10”), and boasting a fine adjust mechanism.  The tool has tarnish, but almost no pitting.  It will clean up nicely.  An owner, “F. T. Mosher” has stamped his name in a couple of places and added a hand filed “M” in two places on one leg.  The outer curved portions of both legs have clearly been hand wrought.  It is a nice older pair of outside calipers.  Good+
