An antique figural tape measure shaped like a strawberry, likely from the 1930s or earlier. The measuring tape, made of celluloid, is marked "Germany" on the cloth tape. The strawberry features a green stem, red fading down to pink at the bottom, and molded seeds. The tape measures out inches on one side and centimeters on the other. The tape measure is in overall good condition with little wear and no cracks or chips. The tape still retracts easily. The strawberry does have a line on one side, as pictured, which may look like a crack at first glance, but it is really a mark left by the mold during the manufacturing process; this line was typical for these pieces. A sweet little addition to your sewing collection.

The strawberry measures about 1.75" high and 1.25" wide. The tape pulls out to about 39".

To ensure a safe trip for this fragile item, it will ship by USPS Priority Mail with insurance.
