A most unusual figural tape measure of a Native American Woman.The head is made of celluloid, in perfect condition, whereas the body is clothed in what I believe to be felt, fairly worn from age. The tape measures 3" tall and about 1-1/2" in diameter at the base. It is marked Japan, measures in inches on both sides, and is in fine working condition. There are a few small holes in the dress and stitches of thread are evident. The hair on the top of the figure is thin and a tiny area of the scalp shows. However, it is just this crudeness in the dress of the figure that makes it so charming and aged. A treasure to add to your collection.
