This is a fabulous old example of a measuring tape produced by John Rabone & Sons.

The tape is made from cloth and is printed with feet and inches. On the reverse it is printed with the words ‘JOHN RABONE & SONS MAKERS BIRMINGHAM TRADE MARK HOCKLEY ABBEY METTALIC TAPE’. The tape is housed in the original hand stitched brown leather case, which reads ‘RABONE’S METALLIC WIRED TAPE’ on one side, and ‘JOHN RABONE & SONS BIRMINGHAM ENGLAND’ on the other side.

The tape has a brass winder in the centre, which is stamped ‘33ft’ and ‘No. 400’, which is the model number. The winder is in good working order.

It has a diameter of approximately 9.0cm.

It is in fair condition for its age, with a nice patina to the leather case. The tape has been repaired at some point, with the frayed end having been sewn onto a piece of leather. This is common in these pieces as they tended to wear out from use.
