J. Rabone / Keuffel & Esser 2' 4 Fold Ivory Architects Rule (86 1/2)J. Rabone & Sons / Keuffel & Esser 2' 4 Fold Ivory Architects Rule (86 1/2)  This English made Rabone Ivory rule dates from near the turn of the century and is configured similar to a Stanley 86 1/2 Architects Rule with its inside legs being beveled.  The outside scales are in inches and graduated in 8ths, 10ths, 12ths, and 16ths.  There are more scales on the inside ranging from 1/16 - 1'  to 1 1/2 - 1'    It is white, and the name and number stamps are clear.  Double marked rules made for this famous maker of Surveying instruments are much harder to find than the Stanley version  A rare thing in very nice condition.

W. H. Harling Ivory rule / Sector for Architects / NavigationW. H. Harling 6" Ivory Rule / Protractor for Architects / Navigation  This English made Ivory Rule is configured similar to a Architects Rule with numerous scales and a protractor on the perimeter.  I have read the scales are navigation related.  Rules like this are usually found in boxed drafting sets, or traveling Shagreen cases associated with navigation or architects.   It is marked with the maker name and location on one face.  The overall condition is very nice.
