RARE 1931 “Filofax”

$_57-4

Well, my love of antique diaries and rare ring organisers meant that this one from eBay just had to fall into my basket. It had been listed before and I had managed to resist but this time I just had to pounce!

It may take some elbow grease to get the brass gleaming again but it is just too beautiful!

  4. How amazing! I’ve seen modern home-made metal binders but never guessed anything like that was ever made. The cover is superb. I’m glad you have it Janet, it will have a very good home with you.
