Portable Braille Writer, no date.

This wood and metal portable braillewriter is in the shape of a ruler. It is 13 inches wide by 3 inches high and 3 inches deep. The long side of the braillewriter faces the user, who depresses keys that are on the right hand side. These keys punch holes in a metal grid of braille dot cells.
