Tyzack question 5 Years, 5 Months ago  
hi

does anyone (ray or others) know about dating Tyzack medallions / stamps?

i have just picked up a nice 12" steel backed with:

J.Tyzack & Son
Sheffield Cast Steel

from what i read this mark may be from the turn of the last century?
when did they start using the 'Elephant' Nonpareil stamps on saws?

thanks
nick

Hi Nick,

The isle of man mark (the three legs) is Joseph Tyzack and Sons, whereas the elephant mark (NonPariel) is William Tyzack (his brother) of Tyzack sons and Turner. The Abbeydale works, they had secondary product line called "Abbeydale"

A good summary of Joseph Tyzack can be found here http://www.wkfinetools.com/hUK/TyzackJ/jTyzack-index.asp
and the book from which that info is sourced "Glass Tools and Tyzacks" by Don Tyzack

A bit more on the Abbeydale works (Tyzack sons and Turner) is here http://www.tilthammer.com/bio/tyzac.html

As to dating, one of the reasons for starting this site, was to build a database over time of information, like medallions, that might lead to more accurate dating.

Your saw, as a wild guess at a date I would say, the second half 19th Century.

Regards
Ray
