Fantastic aged cloth measuring tape by Hockley Abbey (England). Part of the Rabone Chesterman company

This listing is for 1 single yard of tape.
Tape is 9/16 inch (1.5cm) wide.
Color: aged, worn peach

Each inch is numbered and half inches are marked. Every foot up to 12 is marked in red with a number and the letters "FT". At 10 feet the tape continues upwards (11, 12, 13...) to mark every foot in red.

The reverse side of this tape is marked in metric. Every 10cm is marked by a number (...60,70,80...). On each metre there is a number and an "M" indicating the metre measurment

Tape is a vague peach color. A distinctly different color to that of the other measuring tape that I have listed. (see final comparison photo)

I do have more of this tape that is excess to my needs, so if you require more than 1 listing please contact me and I will set up a custom listing amount for you.

I am happy to combine multiple listings to save on shipping. Please contact me.
