This is a Stanley No. 88 Ivory Folding Rule. It is a One Foot, Four-Fold model which is 5/8 inch wide. This model is made with an extra-strong Arch Joint and is fully bound in German Silver. German Silver is a white alloy of copper, zinc, and nickel which was used for the trimmings on premium quality rules due to its silver appearance and improved durability.
This Stanley folding rule has a slight bit of play in one side of the Arch Joint but is in otherwise excellent condition with very little appearance of actual use.
This antique Stanley ivory rule has been carefully cleaned using soap and water and the German silver has been polished using Simicrome Polish.
This Stanley No. 88 Ivory Folding Rule is truly a work of art and a must-have for any true tool collector as it is likely over 100 years old!
