Old Celluloid Tape Measure Advertising Elder Shirts

Old Celluloid Tape Measure Advertising Elder Shirts

This vintage celluloid tape measure is advertising Elder Shirts of Merit on one side with W.G. Beckman on the opposing side. There is a patent date of 1917 embossed on the center band and a 1919 date by the Parisian Novelty Company of Chicago along the edge. The yellow cloth tape has inch increments on one side only.

It measures about 1 7/16" in diameter and is in nice condition with minimal wear. The tape is in good condition with very minimal fraying at the beginning. It pulls out and retracts well with a little lag the last ¼".

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