With EXCEEDINGLY bright and vivid colors, this wonderful 1940's/1950's signed piece boasts great colors and lithographed designs on both sides: a bright, brilliant yellow with three oranges with green leaves, underneath which is a cameo picture of "Sunnie Miss," the words: "Sunnie Miss Toaster," and a Lite/Dark lithographed control.
At the bottom (too small to photograph), is written: "435B177, The Ohio Art Company, Bryan, Ohio, USA."
The piece is in excellent vintage condition with a tiny dent at the top of one side that is difficult to even see unless you hold it up in a certain light. The base of the toaster is hard plastic and is has a working lever (sometimes you may have to push a couple of times). The top could use a nice polishing.
The piece measures 6 1/2" across, and 7 1/2" across if you count the bright green plastic bottom on which the toaster rests. It is 51/4" high and 4" wide (not counting the green bottom).
A fantastic piece to use for display, or as an actual toy. Also a terrific piece for those who work with tin and other metals to use for repurposing because the colors are so vibrant!
Me? I'd plunk this puppy down in the middle of a table and put dried flowers in the two toaster slots! Or, maybe, lollipops, napkins or straws!
Too cute for words!
