Dovetailed steel, gunmetal and rosewood construction, made to exact scale using the traditional methods and tools. The planes were produced for the late Joseph Torras of Shelburne, Massachusetts and delivered to him on April 3, 1985. The original letter of conveyance, together with a Robert Baker business card are included with the set. The planes are nestled in a custom mahogany box with key. The key sometimes works.
