This dainty little retractable sewing tape is in a round silver metal case, which is decorated with a lovely scene of a Church near the river with snow covered mountains in the background. It is protected under celluloid on the top. It would be from the 1930s and measures 1 1/2" across, the cloth tape is marked Foreign, probably German, and is in immaculate condition and still works very smoothly. The condition is excellent on this pretty tape, I think it has been in a private collection and never used, a great addition to any collection.
