For sale is this really nice, circa 1880's vegetable ivory and bone tape measure. The piece measures 2 1/8" high and the base measures almost 1" wide and is carved and pierced. The stamped France tape is hand wound and works perfectly. The top may have had a stanhope at one time, but some were carved this way to place them on a chatelaine. The second last picture shows a small line in the carving (3/16" long) and this is the only flaw on this piece.
