This little celluloid fruit basket is an old, figural tape measure. The pile of fruit is in a “woven” basket with small handles on either side. There is a variety of fruit including pears and both green and purple grapes. I don’t find anywhere on the celluloid that it is marked. It has a white cloth tape which is marked with inches on both sides as well as; Japan. I believe it was made between the 1930's and 1950's.
It measures about 1 ¼” high and about 2“ across at the handles. It is in very good condition with minimal wear. The celluloid is not split or cracked. The tape is in fairly good condition with light fraying along the edges. It pulls out and retracts wells.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
