Item details

The Celluloid sewing tape boom happened in Occupied Japan from 1947 - 1952. These came in many different shapes and figurines. This little pig features a cloth tape measure that would make a fun little edition to your sewing collection. Condition is good, there is a small crack behind one of the ears, but no scratches, or tears that I can see. Tape measure is functioning well.

Due to the vintage nature of this product I cannot guarantee the prolonged functionality of this piece.


FAQs

Growing up, my parents always showed interest in history; therefore, been into "antiques." I remember hours and hours of "antique" shopping to only find vintage China plates, leaded crystal vases, hand-woven dollies, porcelain figurines of dogs and babies, and so on. This was not what I related to history at all. To me it seemed history had been founded on the strong hard work of both Men and Women but all that the antiques showed was the delicate dainty side. Old World MANtiques came from this lack of representation. Old World MANtiques celebrates history through the lens of Testosterone. These items are what MADE history.

Just a quick list includes, but not limited to: Automotive and Transportation Advertising - Beer, Babes, Tobacco Military - Weapons, paraphernalia Tools Science / Medical - instruments paraphernalia Curiosity and Oddity Reminiscent - Toys, Arcade, Coin Operated, Day to day life - Grooming, Home Life, Work, Play I have added to this genre with newly custom made items that hearken that raw testosterone vintage vibe such as steampunk, or industrial design. In short MANtiques are not your Grandma's pretty delicate dainty antiques. MANtiques are pieces throughout history built with Testosterone behind them
