Can You Help Me Figure Out What This Is?

I'm hoping you can help me.  Do any of yall know what this is?

I found it at a garage sale this weekend and I thought it looked cool.

I had seen something like it at a Pottery Barn-type of store.  But I can't seem to find it.

I'm wondering what it's used for.

I figure it's to measure something using the metric system.

Any ideas out there?  Anybody?  Bueller? Bueller?

I have no idea. I too thought at first a surveyors measuring stick or maybe the measuring stick that attaches to a table where they cut and measure fabric. It's cool even if we don't know for sure what it is!

It is very cool looking, although I am scratching my head as to what it is.

I was going to guess a growth chart thing from the doctors office. But a surveyors stick sounds good too. Look here.
