Old, Figural Tape Measure - Trout from Catalina

Old, Figural Tape Measure - Trout from Catalina

This celluloid trout is a vintage tape measure and also a souvenir of Catalina. It's a fairly colorful fish with pink and gray. It is embossed JAPAN with a fleur-de-lis on one side plus it is stamped on the bottom. The white cloth tape which is also marked Japan has inch increments on both sides. This was probably from the late 1940's or early 50's.

It measures about 4 1/4" long and 1 3/8" high and is in good condition with very minimal wear. The celluloid is not split or cracked. The tape is in good condition and pulls out and retracts wells.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
