RARE 1931 “Filofax”


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.
