Remarks                                 :



There are not many of the standard Bartram models with an internal closing cup.


Most of these brass Bartram tools there is none  or at least not much paint left. Apparently the quality of the paint for brass was not very good. This applies not only to Bartram but also to the same tools from that time.

Ther problem with listing Bartram tools on this website is that I don’t have a Bartram catalogue. I have never seen one. With a catalogue it is easier to determine an order. At Dixon, for example, I relied purely on catalogue numbers. With Bartram I have to be creative. There is a certain standard shape with a more or less oval, squared top of the table clamp and a straight turning lever. Those tools begin with “ST”(andard) in the name. Followed with the number of the press lever (Dixon’s catalogue) or a “W” if it is a Webley press lever.
