This chubby puppy is a vintage celluloid tape measure. He seems to be waving his right paw and has the left one on his hip. He's wearing a little painted cap and bow tie. The color of the celluloid is an orangish hot pink and he's standing on a pale pink base which houses the tape. It was probably made in Japan between the 1930's and 50's. The white cloth tape has inches on one side and centimeters on the other. It pulls out and retracts well with lightly frayed edges.
The celluloid is in good condition with minimal wear. There is one very tiny pin hole on his molded tail. It measures about 2 3/4" high and the base is about 1 1/4" in diameter.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
