Vintage, 1920s advertising promotion celluloid tape measure with a colorful image of an old electric, monitor top GE refrigerator on the front, and advertising for a GE dealer on the back. It measures 1&1/2 inch in diameter, and is in excellent condition, with no cracks, or other damage, to the celluloid. Printed on the inside lip is, "Parisian Novelty Co, Chicago", and patent dates of 1917 and 1919. It has a cloth tape, with the original metal end. I've pulled it out just a couple of inches, as these can be temperamental going back it. The cloth looks clean, and in very good condition. Note that the photos are ENLARGED to show detail!
