Tartan Ware Tape Measure, 'Caledonia'
A wonderful petite tartan ware tape measure with the finial used to rewind the silk tape. The tartan clan pattern is ‘Caledonia’. Measurements: 1/2 inch in diameter, 1 3/8 from the base to the top of the finial. I have not tried to use this silk tape as it is just fragile from age. I am also not sure how long this small tartan tape measure ribbon may be. Condition is very good on the holder with only a tiny rubbed area on the finial knob.
