. . . as a contrast to fred's lovely neat Woollin backsaw; here's a WOOLLIN&CO-stamped sashsaw, in the distressed condition in which it arrived here last Summer. The 14 ¾" plate & its back are straight & tight to each other, tho' no longer tight in the handle - as you see, the fastenings have not been touched for a long time, if ever. Goodness knows which handle-maker formed that stylish recurve, behind bold cheeks - a possible resemblance might be to some later Saml Newboulds, as gathered by Joe S & David, &/or to late Barber & Genn? . . . Jonathan Woollin (& Thomas Smith Hodgson, the likely “& Co.”) were certainly well acquainted with Frank Barber - he appointed them as his executors in his final Will of December 26th 1811.
