Vintage Sellotape/Scotch Tape Heavy Duty Tape Dispenser
This very sinuous looking piece of office equipment is a Vintage Sellotape/Scotch Tape Cast Iron Dispenser. Dating to approximately the 1940s, this wonderful piece of industrial design has been Green Powder Coated. The sticky tape reel is easily removed from the dispenser body when you run out of tape.
Height (including roll of sticky tape): 13.4 cm
The metal tape cutting blade is slightly blunt and probably needs replacing/sharpening.
Incredibly sturdy, and very heavy (over 3.3 Kg), it was used in an Engineering office where it was powder coated over twenty years ago to give it a new lease of life. The green is slightly darker than it appears in the images with the blue background and most similar in colour to those images on dispenser on the stand.
It does have some maker’s marks on the base which I am unable to decipher.
