Step Ladder Fabulon Floor Finish Store Display Advertising Promotional Item 1950's

Fabulon Floor finish was advertised as "the twin of bowling alley floor finishes." To prove its durability, the company produced these small step ladders and finished them with Fabulon. I am not sure if they were part of a hardware store display or a promotional item for customers, however this ladder came from the estate of a former hardware store owner. No matter what their original purpose, these step ladders are a rare find dating to the 50's or 60's.

Step ladder has definitely been used over the years, but the Fabulon finish is still in great shape. There are some nicks and chips, as well as paint splashes and stains. Still sturdy, although it is recommended more for decorative purposes than actual use. Measures approx. 24" x 14" x 5.5" when folded and 22" tall, 21" at the base, when opened.

Will be shipped to US customers via USPS Parcel Post. International shipping will be via USPS Priority Mail. If you would like a more exact quote for shipping costs, please convo me with your address.
