This is a lovely mahogany Gledhill and Sons antique cash till. This iconic handmade mahogany shopkeeper's till was made by G H Gledhill and Sons Ltd of Halifax.
There is still a roll of till paper.
Today this item could make an innovative jewellery box or merchandising feature.
Size: W55cm x D29cm x H33cm.
Scaramanga’s old jewellery boxes and vintage tills are not new or made to look old. They may have small marks and scratches on them, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal. Please look at the photos to get an idea of their condition.
No key supplied.
Bio: Back in 1886, whilst running a millinery business in Northgate (Halifax), H Gledhill and Sons Ltd. invented an automatic cash till and automatic cash displayer. The company was established and moved into the top floor of the Trinity Works on Harrison Road, Halifax, to manufacture cash tills. He subsequently took over the whole factory and opened two others in Halifax and one in Huddersfield. The firm bought Frank Brooks time recording business to form Gledhill-Brook Time Recorders Ltd in 1912.
