These are quality "SHOEMAKER'S TAPE MEASURES" made in Germany for Jones and Vining - last makers. They are resin coated filament tapes making them "non-stretch".
Jones & Vining had them made with BOTH Inch and Centimeter scales on side "A". This is uncommon, since most shoemaker's tapes use only inches OR centimeters, not both. They measure twenty four inches / sixty centimeters. Side "B" is marked in "stitch" increments (equivalent to French point or European sizing) and English full and half shoe size increments.
There are 3 French Point sizes per 2 cm. And 3 English or American sizes per inch.
The tapes are used in shoe and boot patternmaking and last measuring and development.
$12 each, plus shipping and handling ($6.)*
* combined with a book purchase, shipping fee is waived for the tape.
If you are interested in shoemaking workshops, tutoring, ordering shoes or services contact me to discuss details and schedules.
THANK YOU FOR VISITING
