E.C. Stearns Adjustable Spokeshave.
This shave was made by Stearns in Syracuse, NY. It's much the same as the Stanley 53 featuring a gull-wing handle design and adjustable mouth. This one has good springs and a decent blade. The blade has some pitting you can see in one spot in the photos. It's missing a lot of original finish. It should still be a fine worker

Very Interesting Peugeot Saw Set.
This pliers-type sawset was made by Peugeot in France. It's in perfect working order. It has some light discoloration you can see in the photos but the original paint is all there. It has two adjustments to it that allows the user to regulate the amount of set and where the plunger hits the tooth to account for different tooth sizes. It's a really interesting design and looks quite useful

Large Beech Spokeshave.
This shave is a little larger than most- it's 11.5in long with a 3 1/8in wide blade. The blade is long free of pitting, and has a good sharp bevel. The beech body has some light wear but nothing major. It's marked "F. Newton" on one handle which i believe is an owner's mark. It has a very faint stamp on the front I can't make out. It'll be a fine worker for sure.
