This is a very interesting gadget stick that was used by mortician's to measure the bodies. Screw off the handle and pull out the 36" measuring stick disguised within. This stick features an ivory handle that measures 1 1/2" x 2" x 1 1/4". The overall length of the stick is 36 3/4" x 2" x 1 1/4". The collar is 1/2" and the ferrule is 2 1/4". A very unusual stick!
