This old 15” long ruler appears to be made of wood which is heavily painted or which has a very thin veneer of paper over it. It has gold, imprinted advertising on both sides. On one side it reads; Ste. Genevieve Lime Co. of St. Louis, Mo. with an address in the Mermod-Jaccard Building. The other side reads; Manufactures and Shippers of the Celebrated Oolitic Standard Brand Ste. Genevieve White Lime. It has beveled edges with inch increments on one side and metal edges on both sides. It was made by a company in Jamestown N.Y. but I can‘t make out the company name. I believe it is from the early 1900’s.
It measures 15” long by 1 ½” wide and is in nice but well used condition with and some damage. There is scratch wear to the black paint or paper. The wood is split at both ends and someone along the way has put scotch tape on it which could cause more damage if removed. A name is written in pencil on one end.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
