C.1800 Straw Hat Tape Measure - the tape measure was a valuable tool for needlework and often used by the lady of the house to double check the measurement of materials.This tape measure is made from early plastics and is wound into the circle by a handle, with the measure made of a silk ribbon (indicating its age- the earliest ones were made from silk ribbon.) A must for the sewing or tape measure collector.
