W. Schollhorn Excelsior Wing Divider Rare!
This is a very nice 6" long wing divider marked by the maker, "W.SCHOLLHORN. CO. NEW HAVEN CONN. EXCELSIOR" on one side near the pivot pin, and on the other side in the same area reads "BERNARD'S PAT. AUG.7.1900". There is some minor wear, but it is clean, shiney, bright finish, sharp and in very good condition overall. A very nice design with the lower wing nut providing the position lock with a shoe type brake design, there is also a fine adjustment feature. This particular style is unique and it is pressed steel construction, where most wing dividers are cast steel. The tips are solid for about 2 1/2" back from the tip. The points are good and the joint is snug, all the adjustment work correctly as intended. A hard to find medium capacity model! We don't see many like this one, and this one is near like new!
