Item details

Handy and unique 24" folding ruler. Made of boxwood and brass.

All hinges, end guards and fastening brads are solid brass. The design is what makes it such a beauty- simple and effective. Four individual sections hinged together (a circular hinge at the center with two barrel hinges joining the two side sections), enabling it to fold down to pocket-size and able to unfold to a 24 inch ruler- straight as an arrow after more than a century.

Made by the Upson Nut Company (purchased and operated by the Stanley Tool Co. after 1890) made this particular #68 style ruler from 1880 to about 1920 in Unionville, Connecticut.

Hard-to-find and thoroughly charming. Great collectible!
