Item C2 - I. Sorby. (Sheffield) Crank Handle Pattern Maker's Gouge.

    This quality shallow sweep pattern makers gouge has a long, tarnished, but clean blade (8 1/2” to the shoulders, and is fitted with a boxwood handle having a brass ferrule. The “different” attraction of this handle is that it bears the carving of a full length nude woman. She is over 4 inches high, and is portrayed with her right hand on hip, and is holding a hand mirror in her left hand. She is wearing only high heeled strapped shoes and a pill box hat. An obvious medical condition is suggested by her hirsute breasts. This is a great gouge, a great conversation piece, and a likely candidate for a museum of medical oddities. Fine.
