Old Figural Tape Measure - Celluloid Dog Head

This is a beautifully made, vintage tape measure in the shape of a dog's head. When I first saw it I was sure it was made of metal. It looks like bronze with the green patina in the crevices but actually it is made of celluloid. I don't know what kind of dog it is but it is nicely detailed. It is flat on the back with a round celluloid cover over the tape housing. The white cloth tape which pulls out and retracts well is marked Germany and has inches on one side and millimeters on the other.

It measures about 2 1/8" from nose to back of ear,1 3/8" high and 3/4" thick. It is in very good condition with a little wear to the paint on the high spots like his cheek bone and also off the back.

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