1930S NICKEL CHROME STAPLER - THE VANGUARD AUTO
What do you get the man who has everything, well, this beautiful nickel chrome Vanguard Auto stapler would be just the ticket. It looks absolutely beautiful, is reassuringly heavy and if you got the correct staples, it would be a useful office tool to boot. Me, I have had it as a sensuous piece of office architecture that I look at and sometimes fondle (ooo-err).
The mechanism works with a resounding thunk and the whole thing smacks of exquisite British design and engineering excellence - pity we don't have much of this left these days. Dating from the 1930s this is a very nice and quite scarce instrument.
