A large antique Edwardian J Chesterman 100ft tape measure.
Made from thick and solid hand tooled leather with brass rivets and a brass push down winder marked 100ft.
One of the earlier Chesterman models, Bow Street Sheffield.
The tape is made from woven fabric and the leather case is embossed with JC, Chesterman, Sheffield, England.
A lovely rustic look it has lots of signs of wear but is still fully functional, the tape is grubby, the brass needs a polish and there are some scratches, overall a lovely early tape measure by a reputable maker.
Measurements are approximately (when lying flat):
