Rare Dated 1940 Air Ministry Thornton Boxed Drawing Instrument Set Ww2 Raf Nores:
This interesting drawing set measures 200mm (8'') x 155mm (6'') x 55mm (2'') and has an inlaid brass plaque to the lid with the date 1940 and the Air Ministry emblem above. It has a lift out top tray with a pair of ebony & brass parallel rule below which is marked AM 1937 AG Thornton Manchester British Make and all the larger pieces in the tray above are marked Thornton AM with dates from 1938 to 1942. It looks pretty complete to me and I have taken 9 photos to show the condition of the pieces and the outer case which is worn and stained. A good quality World War 2 period Air Ministry set from a fine maker in honest used condition with I am sure a great history attached.

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.
