Old, Celluloid Tape Measure - Pouting Pink Puppy

This cute puppy dog is a vintage, celluloid tape measure. It looks like a little boy dog to be that isn‘t getting his way. He has a bit of a frown and has his “hands” in his pockets in a rather defiant way. His white sweater and oink shorts are painted over the pink celluloid. His feet are rather crude like they were melted onto pink base which houses the tape. The white cloth tape has inches on one side and centimeters on the other and is marked; Japan. The base is impressed; Made in Occupied Japan.

It measures about 2 3/8" high and the base is about 1 1/4" in diameter. The celluloid is in good condition with minimal wear and no damage. It pulls out and retracts. The beginning of the tape has minimally frayed edges.

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