VINTAGE STEEL H WALKERS BELL KNITTING NEEDLE GAUGE
DESCRIPTION
Vintage steel bell shaped knitting needle gauge, which was produced by H.Walker of London, and is named "The Archer Bell Gauge" and sizes the needles from size 1 down to size 24.
AGE
The needle gauge is difficult to date as these were produced from the late 19th century through to the 1930's, and I would estimate that this one would date to circa 1920 (as found with other items dating to this period).
SIZE
The needle gauge measures 6.1cm (2½") wide and 7cm (2¾") high
CONDITION
The gauge is in a very good/excellent condition for age with no damage to the steel. Please refer to the above photographs for details of condition.
