Large-sized wooden cased perpetual wall calendar, 1950s

The classic 'linen roller' perpetual wall calendars are notable for their simple Modernist design and distinctive Gill Sans typeface. They were manufactured in various sizes and were in common use throughout the 1940s and 1950s.

This large-sized calendar has a hanging bracket at the rear but could also be used free-standing on a shelf or mantel. The case is made from beech and mahogany plywood, which has been stained to a rich chestnut brown. The day, date and month rolls are all printed on linen and protected by a glass window. The knobs are bronzed and knurled.

The calendar has been fully disassembled and all components cleaned and polished as appropriate. It is supplied in excellent overall condition.
