MiniVip wall coat rack | Benanti and Brunori | Velca, Italy | ca. 1970s

MiniVip is a wall mounted coat rack by Benanti and Brunori for Velca.  It is made of ABS plastic in several colors.   The MiniVip features four hooks that rotate out of the base unit for hanging coats or clothing.Velca logo

The Velca MiniVip is related to the Vip (an umbrella stand and coat rack in chrome and plastic) by name and purpose, but the design is substantially different.  The Vip is a floor standing model, the MiniVip is installed by screws onto a wall.

Lucite acrylic ruler

Here is a different ruler than the 13 inch Lucite ruler I recently posted.  This ruler only measures to 12 inches, yet it has a little extra length, coming in at 12-1/8” long.

The numbers and design are screened in black ink on the top of the plastic.  The ruler is divided only into whole and half inches, and the division lines are 1/4” wide.  This is not a ruler meant for precision.  The numerals are approximately 3/8” tall and from 1 to 6 seem to be moving to the right into a vanishing point at 6-1/2”, in the center of the ruler.   From 7 to 12, they appear to be moving to the left to the same vanishing point.  The and the ruler itself is 2” wide and 1/2” thick.  It is a substantial piece.
