Incredible super heavy industrial cast iron tape dispenser with gorgeous art deco silhouette and lines. It has the original old red and green plaid Scotch Brand Dispenser sticker on the back. The body of the dispenser is a pale greenish-greyish-bluish color with wonderful texture. The tape holder disc is forest green and made of lighter sheet metal.

This can hold a 1" wide roll of tape. I would recommend that this be used for lightweight tape, such as masking tape, since the blade isn't very sharp anymore and likely couldn't cut heavier tape.

There are some marks and wear to the dispenser, including a few orange paint specks and what may be small spots of rust. As you can see in the picture, the bottom has the remains of two rubber (?) pads that have degraded over time. There is a shiny black tar-like substance that comes off the "rubber" if you press on it. If the dispenser is just sitting on a level surface the black stuff won't come off, however if you want to be sure you can easily cover the bottom with felt for complete protection.

Also, the tape holder disc may sit lopsided and not spin freely at times. This is because one of the metal "arms" inside the body of the dispenser (that the tape holder disc rests on) has become a little bent downward with age and use. I have bent it back up and the wheel spins great. You shouldn't have any problems with it, but if you do that little arm is the culprit (it's the one on the right when you are looking down on the dispenser with the Scotch sticker facing you). You will need a screwdriver (or other long/strong/pointy object) to bend the metal back into place.

The dispenser measures 8.5" long, 3" wide, and about 4.75" tall (including the wheel). It weighs a whopping 5.5 lbs on its own without packaging. Because of the weight of this item, I am shipping this via Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate.

This is too heavy for first class international shipping, so the international shipping price listed is for USPS Priority International Medium Flat Rate.

If you have any questions or would like to see more pictures just let me know!

I refund shipping that is $1+ overcharged!
