This measure was $21.00 now reduced to $15.00!
This is a fine example of the craftsmanship of bygone days.
The measuring rule is made of boxwood in Holland by a company called Asset. (all stamped on the instrument)
It has hinges of brass and first slides to open into two parts, and then folds out to turn it into four parts.
The center hinge has one corner that has turned-up a bit and could use clamping back down again.
What makes this interesting is the detail of the design with use of the brass and the fact that the measuring increments also are engraved into the brass, straight across its hinges.
The patina could not be lovelier and this tool has been used and well loved through the years.
Why not give it a home where it might be once again cherished?
Thanks for stopping by and having a peek.
