An antique wood and brass folding rule made in the middle 1800's by H. Chapin. Hermon Chapin, owner of the Union Factory in Pine Meadow, Connecticut made rulers from bone, wood and metals from 1834. His sons took over and made rules and other tools under the name H. Chapin and Sons until 1897 when son Edwin Chapin died. This ruler is marked H. Chapin, No. 31 and is in outstanding condition. As you can see from the photos, the numbers are clear, there are very few scratches and dings and even the scaling marks on each of the four ends are clear and readable. This rule will make a valuable addition to any shop or antique collection.
