Miniature cattle bone tape measure dating to early 19th Century. Possibly a piece of Napoleonic French POW/ Prisoner of War work. Cylindrical container with free spinning top to wind the tape. Small carved bone pin retainer to end of tape. Tape appears to be original and is calibrated in inches (1" to 30"). The numbers appearing to be handwritten in the Continental style - which leads us to think that this may have been made by a French POW
