This celluloid fish is an old tape measure. The sailfish with its large fin is more unusual than the more common trout tape measure. It has remnants of a blue decal on one side and was probably a souvenir from someplace. It is marked JAPAN on the bottom. The yellow cloth tape which is also marked Japan has inch increments on both sides. This was probably from the late 1940's or early 50's.

It measures about 4 3/4" long and 2" high and is in good condition with very minimal paint wear. The celluloid is not split or cracked. The tape is in good condition with light edge fraying and pulls out and retracts wells.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
