Old, Advertising Tape Measure - Arkin Girls

This vintage, celluloid tape measure has a line drawing of two fashionable young women and reads; The Arkin Girls. They appear to be modeling their hairdos and on the reverse side it reads; Andrew Arkin and Leonard Arkin with a New York Address. There is a button in the center that is used to retract the tape and around it it reads; Made in Germany. The metal band between the two celluloid sides is stamped; Germany West Zone. The white cloth has inch increments on both sides and is marked; Made in Western Germany.

It measures about 1 7/16" in diameter and is in nice condition with almost no wear. 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.
