Made circa 1870 as a desk implement, to be rolled over blotting paper that absorbed excess liquid ink (when pen and ink were used). The ferns were printed on paper and glued to the painted wooden roller, then varnished. This example is in excellent condition with tiny signs of use. The rule measures 6-5/8 inches in length.
