This old celluloid tape measure has a portrait of Lydia Pinkham on one side in sepia tones. On the back it lists several of her health remedies like Blood Medicine and Liver Pills. I believe this is from the early 1900's.
It is larger than the standard size, advertising tape measure measuring about 1 3/4" in diameter. It is in nice condition with minor wear. The surface of the celluloid is good but there is some discoloration in an area at about 2 o'clock that is slightly lighter in color. The yellow cloth tape is very slightly frayed along the edges. It has inches on one side only and pulls out and retracts well.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
