Description

FINE IRON OUTSIDE CALIPERS, French, 18th century, measuring 21-1/2″ (55 cm) tall, they feature long three-leaf hinge plates with finely shaped recurved decoration leading to the inward-facing tapered four-sided points. The hinge plates form a full right angle builder¹s square, when open to a scribe mark on the hinge. The hinge itself has beveled rectangle decoration leading to double-S supporters. In fine condition, a wonderful example of early outside calipers, for builder¹s and / or gunner’s use.
