Old, Figural Tape Measure - Dress Form with Needle Storage

This is a fun, vintage tape measure in the form of a bust mannequin. It is made of plastic with goldtone caps at the arms and a goldtone tab to pull out the 36" metal tape which has increments on one side only. The base is plastic and can be removed to reveal a small, felt pincushion. The bottom of the base reads; Roleff Plastics Inc. - N.Y.C. U.S.A.. I believe this is from the 1950's.

It measures about 3 ¾" high and the base measures about 1 5/8" by 2". It is in good condition with minor scratch and rub wear. The tape pulls out and retracts well.

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