Here is a nifty Vintage Bates List Finder Cavalier Model that I found at a recent estate sale.

It has that old school vintage charm boasting a dark green finish along with chrome.

On the front, in addition to the green finish, there is gold colored decoration on the green leather portion.

You can adjust to what page the listfinder opens to by sliding the small knob on the side to the desired letter you want.

Once you slide the knob to your chosen letter of the alphabet (A to Z), gently push down on the deco looking bottom lever and the listfinder pops open to the page you wanted to see.

You can also put in emergency numbers too.

Nice for vintage office decor and perhaps vintage telephone collectors as a go along item.


Condition
No box
Used with some handwriting and typed information on pages.

After some research I see that replacement paper refills may be available for this Cavalier model on the other e site.

The pages have yellowed from time, age and usage There is no bad smell or odor.

There are some scratches to the finish and the chrome also shows marks and wear from being used and age. On the gold embossing there are a few areas of color rub or loss.

I dry dusted the Listfinder off as I was not sure of the best way to clean it. I will leave any further cleaning up to the new owner.


The back of the listfinder is embossed

It measures about 7 1/2 by 5 1/4 by 1 1/4. Measurements are approximate.
