I've been collecting old tools for a long time but never ran into anything like the set I picked up today.
There are very few markings to lend clues, the slender tool in the top row with the ebony handle is marked Blake & Co.
and the little spoon looking thing has a patd date of 1889 if I'm making it out right
One pair of the pliers is marked with a large "W" over a pair of "S"'s
I couldn't find Blake & Co. in the EAIA book and the only thing that made sense that I found on google was a reference to linotype which kind of makes sense given the shapes. Hard telling what all goes together, maybe the plier things were just thrown into the cigar box. Any ideas?
