EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable piece of craftsmanship from the 16th century - a Smoothing plane, c. 1570. Created by the German School, this wrought iron tool measures 14 cm in length and belongs to the esteemed David Russell Collection. What sets this smoothing plane apart is its boat-shaped design and intricate detailing. The sole and top of the plane have been skillfully brazed on with a copper alloy, while an etched foliate pattern adorns every surface, including the slightly worn sole. A steel cutter bearing the stamp "MAILLOT / A LYON" has been neatly secured with a wing-nut as a replacement. The ornate nature of this smoothing plane reflects both its decorative purpose and functional significance in woodworking during the Northern Renaissance period. Carpenters would rely on such tools to achieve smooth surfaces in their craft, making it an essential implement for their trade. The fine engravings and attention to detail make this smoothing plane not only practical but also visually appealing. Its traditional design serves as a testament to centuries-old woodworking techniques that continue to inspire craftsmen today. Bridgeman Images presents us with yet another exquisite glimpse into history through this stunning photograph print from their Fine Art Finder collection.
