Victorian fancy topped ebony and brass cabinet makers level by Mackay, Burley & Heys Glasgow
The Glasgow firm of Mackay Burley & Heys made carpenters tools in the 1870-80s.
They specialised in levels and this quality cabinet makers example measures ca 24.5cms long by 2 wide
Usually these have a plain brass top but this one has been given a fancy cut out finish.
This example has a few pieces of wood missing from the fancy top and also a chip out of the end of one side, overall though it is in good original condition.
