Antique Sewing Tape Measure Celluloid Shape of Fruit Basket. Figural celluloid tape measures were popular at the turn of the last century. This one is circa 1915. The brown basket holds raised fruits, apples, pears, grapes. The spring tape measure pulls out from a side slit. Amazingly, this still has its paper tag on the bottom that says Germany. This is booked on page 98 of Sewing Tools & Trinkets by Thompson.
Size: 1 1/2 x 1
Condition: good vintage--at the slit we are noticing a further slit down into the basket--we are not sure if this is an extension of the slit allowing the tape to come through or if it is a bit of tear from use of the measure. It is about 1/8"
Price: $65 Shipping included via uninsured first class mail USA
