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.
