Vintage Antique Leveling Rod Surveyors Measure is solid wood and brass, possibly antique railroad or mining equipment - now Industrial Home Decor. ~ From a rural Illinois estate.

This large surveyor's measuring tool is all wood with solid brass hardware and fabulous vintage-font numeral markings! Marked "Dietzgen 6520R" Now, obsolete in our digital age, these pieces have become exceedingly rare.

In fantastic condition - this one was never left out in the elements but very well-cared for.
Wood retains its beautiful original finish. Number markings are sharp and readable.

Folded size: 54" high x 1.75" across front x 2.5" deep
Extends / telescopes in desired increments to: 160"

Fabulous industrial decor piece. I have more of these for use in wall unit construction, display, etc. Would make a unique child's growth chart.
