Item details

A sweet vintage seamstress's measuring tape in a metal case, with tiny petit point floral embroidery. This is a retractable tape in working order but the tape is damaged and this sewing notion should be used for decorative purposes only.

This tiny metal case is oval and measures about 1.75 inches by about 1.25 inches. It is made of metal with a black fabric inset with petit point floral embroidery in pink, green, yellow and blue. The black of the case is finished in a deep blue enamel and the sides are silver. The tape measure is red but a good deal of the color and the markings have worn off--it appears the tape got wet and the finish stuck to other parts of the tape. The tape is retracted with a push button on the back of the case--this mechanism works.

The tape in in good visual condition--very pretty and decorative. I would be cautious about using it and pulling the tape out frequently--it's age and condition may make it fragile.

Please keep in mind that this item is vintage and we love it, in part, because of its age, history and patina. I feel that beauty is enhanced by the fact that they have been used and loved and they don't look brand new.

If you have any questions, please feel free to convo me and I will respond as soon as possible.
