Rule of Love Silver Mechanical Measuring Tape Charm

"To measure the man, measure his heart." ~Malcolm Forbes

While this little charm might not be able to measure the full extent of your sweetheart's heart, it surely must be in cupid's tool belt! The rule, or perhaps, ruler of love, is a classic, sweet charm, this one is in unusually good condition. Intricate little details on the silver enliven the simplistic nature of the charm and shows it to best effect.

Condition: Good vintage condition, very good vintage condition when the construction and delicacy of the piece is taken into account. The tape measure itself has a diameter of just under ½", or 7/16". I have not pulled the tape measure all the way out, but I have pulled it out and pushed it back in a little ways to test it. The lever turns and seems to help wind it back in, but you have to remember this was never made as a spring-loaded mechanism that automatically retracted or anything. Fair amount of tarnish, but that can always be polished off. All pieces original and present. Marked `MEXICO STERLING' on back.
