Old, Figural Celluloid Tape Measure - Black Bear

This realistic looking bear, walking on all fours, is a vintage celluloid tape measure. It is marked JAPAN on his belly and was probably made between the 1930's and 1950's. The white cloth pulls out and retracts wells and is incremented on both sides.

It measures about 2 3/8" long by 1 3/8" high. The celluloid is in good condition but the paint shows minor wear with the bluish black having scuffs showing through to the pink celluloid. The tape is in good condition.

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