Vintage Putnam Yardage Estimator And Picks In Original Box - Bakelite Case:
$20


Offered is this neat artifact from Fabric stores of years gone by, a Putnam Yardage Estimator. It is 8 inches in diameter with a white dial that includes the instructions for use. Instructions also included in the original black box. The dial turns as the metal spring is pulled out to estimate yardage in bolts of fabric. Also included are two fabric picks that are used to count folds in a bolt of fabric. An instruction sheet is also included for them. This device saved lots of time and trouble because you could easily estimate total yardage on a bolt without having to unroll it. In great vintage condition, the case is made of dark brown bakelite with black and white dial and glass cover. The MeasureGraph Company of St. Louis MO manufactured this neat item. The black box it comes in is 9 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches by just over 2 inches deep and is in very good condition with no splits and only minor scuffs and a couple of nicks on the bottom and top edges from decades of use and storage.This tool would look great displayed in a sewing room or tailor's workroom. Will ship promptly to winning buyer upon confirmation of payment via PayPal. Thanks for looking and offerding. Please wait for invoice as shipping cost may be less than estimated dependent upon your relative location.
