1888 The Griffin Rug Hooking Machine Punch Tool Wool Carpet Tufting Orignal Box
As seen in the photos...
Magazine advertisement in "The American Gardener"
The tool still has the original oil... so no rush and shows it was obviously used well!
Close-up of markings: PAT.AUG 28, 1881 AP'L 13 1886
The box is 'well worn' and there is some interesting writing on the bottom of the box.
Could the salesman be figuring a price for the shop owner? It's fun to think about what happened 100+ years ago!
Approx. Size of box: 10"L x 1-1/2" x 1-1/2"
Thanks for looking!
