  Marples "Shamrock Brand" Tools for Plumbers and Glazers, 1935    

To the Plumbers

In introducing to your notice this new edition of our Catalogue, we would remind you that for many years we have specialized in the manufacture of Plumbers' Tools.

Plumbing is a highly technical trade, and for efficient work you require the best Tools-correct in shape and design, and of full weight.

In our Factory all these points are carefully watched.

It is our constant endeavor, by means of strict supervision and frequent tests, to maintain the very high reputation our Tools have always enjoyed.

When buying Tools, therefore, ask your Dealer for MARPLES "Shamrock Brand".

MARPLES “Shamrock Brand” Tools are stocked by the leading Dealers and Hardware Stores, who buy their tools in bulk, and can distribute cheaply and efficiently - besides giving that personal, service which is so appreciated by the careful buyer.

Remember - a good tool quickly pays for itself, whether you work for profit or pleasure; a poor tool is a poor bargain, whatever the price. MARPLES “Shamrock Brand” TOOLS are known all over the world for their outstanding quality; they are of BRITISH MANUFACTURE throughout and carry an unqualified guarantee.

Your dealer is authorized to replace any tool which fails to give full satisfaction providing it has been fairly used on the work for which it was designed.
