1940's Tape Measure, Sewing, Made in Germany, BR Zone


Measures: 1.5" across

An adorable little tape measure from the mid 1940's. This was made in the British Occupied Zone of Germany following WWII. It has a tan and blue checkered design on one side and a pretty etched design on the other. The tape is cloth with a metal pull tab, the retraction button works well. The tape is very tender and should be pulled out with great care but it does work. There is a stamp "Germany BR Zone" above the pull tab and "Germany" is stamped on the metal end of the tape itself. A great piece of history to add to a collection!
