Description

Ariel electric eraser (in colour burgundy) with shield, rotating plug erasers and spare chuck.

These erasers were widely used in drawing offices to remove ink to adjust errors or amend plans on drafting film. Although the eraser could be used on paper, great care and a light touch was required to avoid breaching the paper. On paper, razor blades were very often the preferred tool for removing unwanted ink marks.
