We have sourced a collection of vintage 1960s wooden rulers, each marked in imperial inches. Rulers, also known as rules, began as an attempt to standardize measurements based on the human anatomy, such as the foot and the hand. By the 17th century, rulers were marked in inches, with smaller, fractional lengths coming later. These rulers are in such excellent condition, they look like they've never been used. You can't go wrong with a good straight line - and these look great on the desk.
Date of manufacture: c.1960
