Rare toy suitcase with Tom the Piper's Son painted on the lid. The case is made out of heavy cardboard covered in a blue linoleum-type material, with brown metal handle and brown stiched trim. Tom has googly eyes, wears a Scottish kilt. and two piglets dance to his "pipe." The interior is lined in patterned paper. Metal hinges, rivets and fittings. Measures 6 1/2 x 7 1/4 x 3 1/2. This suitcase has been played with a lot. It's scuffed around the edges and some of the simulated leather trim has split on the back side. A portion of the bottom has been glued back together. Nevertheless, this is a charming and rare piece and a great addition to any vintage toy collection!

The nursery rhyme that inspired this toy dates to the 18th century:

"Tom Tom the piper's son
Stole a pig and away he ran,
The pig was eat and Tom was beat
And Tom went roaring down the street."
