Greetings from Damascus, Oregon!

Introducing a wonderful laundry themed item: An antique red metal clothesline with handle, stop lock, and line.

Holes top and bottom for fastening to the wall or cupboard (sorry, screws not included).

Made in the 1940s. Made in the USA and ACME stamped on the side.

Has the original string, still in usable condition. The original red wooden handle is in great condition and has a stop lock on it which stops the cord from moving when extended. Fully functional/works perfectly! The red paint appears to be original and is in pretty good condition except around where the stop lock has rubbed.

The unit extends 3" from the wall and is 4 1/2" tall from the top to bottom. The actual line is a double line and when out all the way, is 11 1/2' long. Attach the rounded end of the line to a hook screwed into the wall (sorry, not included) or tie the end to secure.

Use as intended for drying clothes. Or think outside the box and use with vintage clothespins to hang your kitchen curtains, travel souvenir postcards, baby clothes in a child's bedroom, display artwork, photos, etc.

A wonderful addition to your cottage or vintage RV to take with you on those upcoming camping trips!

Please convo me with your location for shipping rates outside the continental US.
