ITEM #: 32351 Level Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. The spirit level was invented in the early 1400s by Melchisedech Thevenot, amateur mathematician and scientist who worked for King Louis XIV of France. This dandy device has been modified over the centuries, but is still a key gadget found in most every toolbox today. While this Level ornament may not tell you if your Christmas tree is level with the ground, it still looks fantastic and makes a great gift for the carpenter or handyman in your life.
