A good wrough iron amputation saw, not signed, datable from the late 17th century and probably French or German.
The frame is nicely forged in early form with a decorative end.
The handle is not in ebony but made in a kind of strong wood (mahogany ? or European strong wood).
A very little lack of iron on one of the two fish-shaped ends and a play of 1 cm between the wooden handle and the beginning of the frame, otherwise fine original conditon.
Size : 47 cm total lenght, 27 cm for the blade.
