Vintage Tape Measure

A stately gift for the designer in the family.

Restoration Hardware's tape measure is crafted from leather, copper and cloth, similar to the 19th-century originals. So much chicer than the run-of-the-mill plastic versions of today, this vintage-looking beauty is as pretty as it is practical.

Vintage cloth tape measure, $49, at Restoration Hardware.
