Rare FRECH Mahogany Level
While Frech levels turn up from time to time, nothing is known about the man who made them. There are examples marked C.H. FRECH, and there are others (like this example) that are only marked FRECH. At some point, for an unknown reason, the “C.H.” was removed from the stamp. This 30″ example has beautifully grained mahogany. I believe Frech was being very careful in choosing the pieces of wood he used for his levels – many have very striking, almost shimmering grain. Fantastic spread-wing eagle mark in the brass top plate. Both vials are full and working.
