This early antique tape measure is carved of ivory and has a nice old patina. The top and sides are beautifully turned. The woven tape is marked in inches and centimeters (starts at 4" & has some staining). The spindle on top turns to rewind the tape and works well.
It is in excellent condition with no damage and the natural ivory grain is lovely. It measures 1 1/8" in diameter and almost 1" high.
