Old Celluloid Figural Tape Measure - Small Cottage

This comfy looking celluloid house is a vintage tape measure. It is nicely detailed with green plants climbing up the walls. The back of the house has a small logo and the word JAPAN. The white cloth tape pulls out from the side, not the chimney which is unusual. It has inch increments on both sides and is marked; Made in Occupied Japan.

It measures about 1 3/4" tall and 1 1/2" across and in nice condition with minimal wear and no damage to the celluloid. The paint on the roof is two tone where some of the paint is heavier than in other places. The celluloid bottom bulges a bit so the house is a bit tipsy. The tape pulls out and retracts well and is in very good condition.

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

This will be shipped by USPS First Class Mail. Foreign shipping will be determined by the receiving country. Please read our home page regarding payment options and shipping policies. Thank you.
