A very sweet and scarce combination cloth tape measure and teeny thimble holder and thimble dating to the 1880-90 period. German in origin as seen by the red cloth tape that winds in by the little handle. The tape is printed cm to one side and inches to the other. This small gilt coated white metal novelty flat iron with red leather handle and original blue velvet lining to the thimble holder will make a fine addition to your sewing box or thimble holder collection.

Size: 1.75" tall by 2.5" long

Condition: It has been a favorite tape measure as seen by the wear to the gilt colored coating. The red cloth tape is reduced in size from 37 inches to 35 inches but winds in well. The top front of the flat irons foot plate drops down to reveal the tiny thimble.

Please see our other antique sewing tools, some shown in the last image, each retailed separately.
