Item details

Antique Celluloid Painted Flower Basket Sewing Measuring Tape. This is a wonderful antique sewing collectable made in the 1920's to 30's. The tape measure is a figural basket of flowers. The flowers are painted pink and blue with green leaves.

The tape measure measures 1 3/4" long from end to end. Sits 1 1/2" high by 1 1/4" deep. Tape extends to 38" on one side and 95 cm on the other side. Overall condition is fairly good for it's age. Tape fabric is nice and clean. Spring mechanism works fairly well and it comes out and retracts to about the 3" mark on it's own. End of tape has a piece of tape on it. It should have had a bead or a lady bug on the end to prevent it from going all the way into the basket. I assume this is why the tape is on the end as well as keeping it from fraying. Side edge and near the base have a small chip and a line crack. It is stable and does not affect it's use. Nice little collectable for a sewing enthusiast or a seamstress.

The last photo shows an advertising tape measure I also have available. Stop by my shop and take a look.
