A Vintage Celluloid Advertising Tape Measure
United States Hoff-Man Machinery Co.
With Great Graphics
This is a great 90+ year old vintage celluloid tape measure with pressing machine graphics on the front.
It is rare -- according to Terapeak there has not been a tape like this offered on Ebay in the last year.
According to the back this garment press will press 50 suits daily! "Eliminate the danger of scortching or buring. Perfectly press a suit or overcoat in 15 minutes. Absolutely sertilize all garments pressed. Exert pressure from one pound to one thousand pounds on all garments pressed."
The side of the tape measure says "Press sides to release spring." "Bastian Bros, Rochester, N.Y." is also printed on the side of the tape.
It measures 1 3/4" across.
The tape measure works well. It has good tension and retracts quickly when you press on both sides of the tape measure. The tape measure retracts quickly and easily.
The tape itself is fabric with inches on one side. The pull tab is present and appears to be original to the tape. The tape is all there.
No damage to the image or to the tape measure.
It comes from our collection and from a smoke free environment.
