This is a nice piece of vintage advertising - a celluloid tape measure from Colgate advertising for their Fab detergent. It is in good working condition, but as always with these old tape measures, you have to be careful and pull it out slowly and don't let it retract too quickly as they are fragile and tangle, snap or jam. It was made by Carroll of Chicago and has advertising on both the front and back. It measures 1.5 inches in diameter. It has a little rust on the metal handle that is at the end of the tape and that has left some marks on the edges. Overall, though, a nice old piece for the collection!
