vintage cloth tape measure by Lufkin, 50ft, in leather case with great patina
- - - - - - -
I love the look of vintage, well worn leather and this tape measure is no exception: it's got that lovely aged look!

It's a fully functional tape measure that releases a cloth tape that's a little more than 50 feet long (I've unspooled it all the way and easily rolled it back up using the little pop-out knob).

Size: 4.25" diameter
Side 1 is embossed in the leather: The Lufkin... (can't read), 50 ft, Saginaw, Mich. U.S.A.
Side 2 is embossed: Metallic Tape, Made in U.S.A. (there is a smudge of red paint on this side, see last photo)
Cloth tape has a bit of an old, slightly musky odor when you unwind it. The stitching is also a bit loose on one side but it's not fragile or about to pull apart – this tape measure is quite sturdy (and heavy!)

Great addition to your collection – or take it apart and use in your next mixed media project!

***SHIPPING NOTE: on my larger items such as this one, I will refund the shipping cost difference if I've over-estimated it by more than $2. If you're interested in additional items, please convo me your zip code and I'll be happy to calculate exact shipping costs.
