Antiques And Collectables; Folding Wooden Measuring Devices

13 Jul

I have some nice measuring devices from the past.




This is a folding 6 foot measuring tape. It has brass rivets and a 6 inch brass slide-out device on the end. It really has that nice, old patina.



This is a nice 24 inch ruler you could slip in your shirt pocket. It also has brass hardware with that nice aged patina. And yes, that is Oreo laying there helping me.



This is a 12 inch pocket model from the same era, with a brass slid-out caliper and just as nice.



This is a more modern reel type cloth tape with a very nice stitched leather cover made by the Justus Roe and Sons Company and I think it’s very nice as well.

    These are great, especially the last pic. Will you ever use them?

      Hi Diva. I doubt it, they are too nice to use. I’ll just use my new made in China plastic and metal tapes then if they break I’ll just toss them in the trash and get another one.
