Great Old Handmade 24 Inch Double Sided Ruler with Brass Ends

Regular price $45.00

I’m always on the hunt for old handmade measuring sticks of various sorts, and happily have been turning some up lately. This is a 24 inch ruler, marked on both sides, with the measurements running in opposite directions. Hand-pressed numbers, brass wrapped ends, and nicely gridded double lines at top and bottom of each side marking half and quarter inches. Plus a hole for hanging. Lovely.

24 x 1 3/8 x 3/16 and in very good condition with a great patina of use. Late 19th/early 20th c. I would think.
