All original, brass, antique, mechanical tape measure in the shape of a finely groomed French Poodle. It has a silky blue tape that winds in and out easily, but is very worn, so the numbers can barely be read. I believe they are in centimeters, leading me to believe that this gorgeous piece was made in France, or England. There are no marks. I have only taken the tape out about 7 inches. The tail spins on its own if you pull the tape, or you can wind the tail counter clockwise to let the tape down, and clockwise to pull it back in. The dog is articulated at its shoulders. It measures 2&1/4 inches long, and about 1&3/4 tall. I have not cleaned or polished it. The brass is in pristine, original condition. Circa 1880-1900. If you are a serious collector of vintage, figural tape measures, this piece is not to be missed! Please note that the photos are ENLARGED to show detail!
