This is a nice, vintage tape measure with a sterling silver housing. The round tape has the same beautiful design, an intricate art nouveau design with a floral motif, on both sides. The center is slightly depressed with the outer design slightly raised. One side has a more defined rim, due to the way it was put together, than the other side which has a flatter outer edge. Both sides are stamped; Sterling with no makers hallmarks. It has a cloth tape with inch increments on one side only.
It measures about 1 ¼” in diameter by 7/16” thick and is in very nice condition with minor wear. The side with the less defined edge has some discoloration around the outer edge that almost appears to be paint. I have not tried to scrape it or otherwise remove it. The cloth tape is in good condition with some soiling. It has the original pull ring and it pulls out and retracts well.
