Mid century vintage 1950's Staedtler Tradition model number "555 07" stainless steel drafting set, made in Germany. Set is complete with 11 pieces and includes a ruling pen (to be used for drawing with inks or liquids) with tips/nibs & compasses that can be used with ink and/or pencil lead. Many of these pieces are still relevant today for drawing and architectural drafting, or simply enjoy the box for retro office decor.
Two-tone red & black plastic box measures 7½" long x 3¾" wide and ¾' thick. On the underside it says "Made in W. Germany D.G.B.M." which likely means this set was born post-WWII.
Condition: Hard plastic case is in fine condition. Velvet backing on inner lid is peeling away. The original owner put his/her name on it with a sticker (see bottom image). Stainless steel pieces function perfectly for their age.
