Rare Chamfered Faux Ivory Rule Ruler 4 Stage Folding Nickel Mount Architects Nr:
This very unusual ox bone rule measures 80mm (3'') closed and 300mm (12'') extended x 20mm (.75'') across both legs. It is unmarked and is a four part folding or extendable rule. It dates to the mid to late 1800's and is an architects or engineers pocket rule and has the very unusual feature of chamfered internal edges that I have only ever seen on the larger 24'' folding rules with the quality arched nickel or German silver mounts. It is missing one locating pin and one side of each of the end nickel mounts (photo3&4), the graduations are still good and it is still straight. An unusual form quality Victorian pocket rule.
This is one of two rules I am selling this week and I will always combine shipping where possibleInternational buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me. All our items are extremely well packed to save them from damage in transit. If you are not happy with this article based on the information I have provided I will always happily refund minus the cost of any postage.
