Cute old sewing accessory, tape bar is stamped Germany, and tape is in centimeters, totaling 100, instead of inches like most I found, leading me to believe this is an older piece, usually denoted as Victorian Era. About 2 1/4" long. Tape still works, and you wind his tail to roll it back up, but tape is likely silk or at least old cloth, so fairly fragile, but in one piece still. I wouldn't play with it. No damage other than it shows some minor signs of use and the patina varies as most do by now, but nice overall. A similar one with an inches tape recently sold for about $60 with shipping, other rarer variations are priced up to hundreds of dollars, so who knows. I'm gonna bet mine is older and worth more than the $60 one, and still may be giving it away at...$75
