L. L. Davis Adjustable Spirit Level 12 Inch InclinometerL. L. Davis Adjustable Spirit Level 12 Inch Inclinometer  Info on the front dial plate.  One Patent Date.  Early mark. This 12" Davis Inclinometer Level looks to me to have been restored.  Look at the pics showing the corners. There are crack lines that are either a repair or the corners are still in place because they run past just the corner and into the frame. Initially I thought it was original, but now think it is restored and has been repainted as well.   Nice job, but in the words of our great Leader, "it is what it is"
