A nice early Victorian novelty tape measured shaped as an apple.
It is made from wood with the original burlap tape, nicely coloured red and green like a real juicy apple.
The stalk on the top winds the tape back in and there is a small mother of pearl button that stops the tape from winding in and getting lost.
It has a folk art feel to it, very nice piece of antique treen with a sewing connection.
Good condition overall, some fraying on the tape and some minor paint loss.
