Everitt's patent tie press & tie filler c1920s vintage


A vintage British tie press, circa 1920s.
This is an early Everitt's tie press, marked PROV PAT (provisional patent).
The patents for this press were granted in the mid-1920s.
The accompanying Everitt's Tie Filler has a design number which was registered in 1910.
A very useful piece of equipment for a traditionally-minded gentleman.
Simple, square lines, sturdy, and equally suitable for use at home, or when travelling.
The tie filler is made of stout card, and was designed to be used with this tie press.
The clamp works very well, and the press functions well, despite its age.
The wood lies very flat, and is lovely and smooth.
Note: I have included a tie in the pictures, just to show how the tie filler works, and to give an idea of scale.
This tie is NOT included with the item.

Size
12 inches (30 cm)
Weight 500g
 
Condition
This is a good, no-nonsense vintage item, made for practical use rather than for ornament.It has scuffs and surface scratches from normal use, but no other damage.
The metal parts are in good condition and full working order, though no longer as shiny and silvery as when the press was made.
The tie filler is creased and yellowed with age, but it still does a good job, as you can see.
