Brass Builders Level, Tripod and Measuring Staff

Made by Cooke Troughton & Simms Ltd for the Chief Engineers Department of the London County Council in around 1925, this completely original mahogany boxed builders level with hardwood tripod and extending 14 foot measuring staff would have cost a fortune when new.
It has service labels for 1930 - 1953 on the lid, so may be due another if you wanted to recommission it.
In very good original condition.
Width 17" / 43cm
Depth 7" / 18cm
Height 10" / 25.5cm
Tripod Length closed 58" / 148cm
Measuring Staff Length closed 64" / 163cm

Jonathan Dyas has been indulging his passion for antiques for over 30 years; from an early interest in restoring original pieces and researching their provenance, has grown an established antiques business based in South West London. As decorative styles and tastes evolve, his quest for both quality and quirky items has resulted in AJD Contemporary - an eclectic mix of furniture and accessories spanning many design periods. Whether crafted in the 17th or 21st century, good quality and expert design are to the fore, as antique and modern pieces increasingly co-exist in traditional and contemporary spaces.

Current stock ranges from oak coffers made in the reign of Charles I to iconic film posters from the sixties - and much more in between. While Jonathan’s enthusiasm for fine Georgian furniture is undiminished, he continues to expand his inventory to reflect his clients’ tastes in new areas such as 20th century art and sculpture.

AJD Contemporary is an online business with all items available to view by appointment.
