Antique Corozo Nut Stanhope Souvenir Tape Measure - Six Views of Rhyl
SEE ADDITIONAL PICTURES BELOW
Antique vegetable ivory or corozo nut souvenir tape measure in the form of a barrel with bone Stanhope winder and yellow three foot tape (in inches) with bone ring pull. The barrel is lettered Rhyl though a bit rubbed. Inset into the winder is a Stanhope viewer through which six miniature photographic views of Rhyl can be seen and include 3 different views of The Promenade, Children's Paddling Lake, Marine Gardens and The Sands. Underneath the photos is the title: A Present from Rhyl. Approx. 4.3 mm from end to end (including winder). Everything seems to work as it should. In very good condition for its age - free of damage.
Stanhopes, or 'peeps', are miniature microphotographic lenses incorporated in many novelty collectables produced from the mid-19th century onwards.
The hand carved corozo (or tagua) nut (also known as vegetable ivory) is the large kernel of the South American palm. It became very popular in the 19th century and was used to make a variety of needlework tools and containers.
