Today it's my super heavy all metal masking tape dispenser.
This thing is a beast. It must weigh 3-5 pounds.
It's probably from the 1940's. I has the green "crinkle" paint finish for lasting a lifetime.
I use it for masking tape, but any larger sized tape would work.
Stamped "5" on the bottom.. not sure that's for the weight or size.
At sometime, a guy named "Angel" owned it. I love the deco lines of it and the size of this thing. If you're going to use tape, why not get it from a beast of a dispenser? Old office accessories like this are a must for the Vintage Gear Guy!
