1 1/8” tall, this tape measure is in the form of a little crock or barrel, perhaps a butter churn. What makes this special is the lens in the top of the handle. Hold it very close to your eye and you see a picture of a French church called St. Anne de Beaupré, the new basilica. The handle is bone, and the barrel is vegetable ivy, or Tagua nut.
