This Ruler is Sterling Silver from Tiffany & Co. with the words "Tiffany & Co." and "Makers" and "Sterling" engraved in the silver. It comes with a pouch with the Tiffany & Co. Logo as well. The Chevron Symbol is in the middle of the top of the ruler. T are markings for this 6 inch ruler which weighs about 2.6 ounces and is in very good condition with very little tarnished spots - the back of the ruler looks just as clear and shiny as the front of the ruler.This ruler was a gift to a worker at the Pullman Train Co. in Chicago - Other items given as gifts with this ruler date to around 1930 - 1970 as far as I know. The other gifts include a pen and a magnifying glass that I also have currently listed on Ebay. The Chevron Symbol is very unique for this type of item and ties it into the Pullman Co. Please email me with any questions. is some information about this item from the owner that I am listing them for:
These items were gifts from Pullman Inc. I was an employee t in the 70's and in 1980 it was sold off. The company purchased high end items from Tiffany & Co as gifts. Not sure how old these items really are, they could have been purchased anytime after 1930. That is when Pullman Inc was formed.
Also, the magnifying glass is just as it was when I received it. Everything is original.
My guess is that Tiffany has a company provide them with the magnifying glass itself and they set it on the silver handle.
If you would like to read up on the company to determine a time frame, you can get onto this site and read about Pullman Company, then Pullman INC. The logo is definitely a Pullman Inc Item. I wish I could remember when they designed that chevron logo. This could be the key to when they were purchased. /wiki/Pullman_Company
