Description

This is a Stunning Victorian Austrian Novelty Cold Painted Bronze Rabbit on a Plinth Tape Measure, this i believe was crafted in Austrian c1900 making it 119 years old, this is a Cold Painted Bronze Rabbit or Hare on a Plinth Wind-Up Sewing Tape Measure. The wind-up mechanism is in good working order, the Rabbit turns to retract the Tape and extends to 56 inches and there is a Pin at the end of the Tape to stop it going inside. The detailing of the Rabbit is Superb with its Long Ears and it is standing up on its 2 Hind Legs, It measures 4.2cm in height & 2.5cms diameter. This would have been owned by a Wealthy Lady in the Victorian Period, condition in general is good, it is fully functioning but there is paint wear to the Plinth and the Base and dis colour wear to the tape and is only mentioned for accuracy, This will add something very special to any collection, my photos dont do it justice.
