Old Lumber & Coal Celluloid Advertising Tape Measure

This vintage celluloid tape measure is advertising the La Crescent Lumber & Coal Company of Minnesota. Both sides of the blue and white tape measure are the same. It was made by the Parisian Novelty Co. of Chicago. It is interesting that it is marked P.N. Co. Chgo. with the last patent date being 1919.

It measures about 1 7/16" in diameter and is in good condition with minimal surface wear. The yellow cloth tape has inches on one side only. It is in good condition with fraying at the beginning. It pulls out and retracts well.

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