Vintage Celluloid Tortoise Tape Measure Rhinestone Bumble Bee Germany, circa 1900. It is a long oval and has a bumble bee painted on the top that has rhinestone accents.
A wonderful old sewing notion.
The white fabric measuring tape pulls out easily. The metal button on the back recoils the tape back, with a great "snap."
Unusual, old tape measure made of celluloid with a tortoise shell blend of colors. This is definitely not real tortoise.
The metal mechanism can be seen through the semi transparent plastic on the back.
On the back, near the button it is marked MADE IN GERMANY. Dating it to before World War II.
It is an oval shape: 2 inches long x 1 - 1/2 inch wide and approximately 1/2 inch thick / deep.
The back has some surface scratches. The plastic has no warps, bends, chips or cracks. The painting and rhinestones are WONDERFUL! MADE IN GERMANY.
