vintage circus toy box Gay Time by Pearlwick from the 1950s
white with primary colors printed with animals and clowns,
wood with white painted metal trim and a quilted vinyl covering, the lid is lightly padded

measurements: 24 long x 14½ wide x 15 deep (with lid closed)

Use this whimsical box for it's intended purpose or as a clothes hamper. Would also make a nice display in a children's boutique.

Condition -- Please Read All Notes Prior To Purchase:

This box has a few exterior scuffs and a few very small punctures/torn spots in the vinyl lid. The white part of the vinyl has a mild overall patina but the colored graphics are still clear and bright. The metal trim has some wear including chippy paint in spots and a bit of rust. There are surface scuffs/wear under the lid, inside of the box and on the bottom panel. The original label is missing. The tension chain to hold the lid open is missing but the hooks are intact so it could be replaced with a new length of chain. Please view all of the photos, click zoom to enlarge, and ask questions prior to purchase.

Safety Notes: This item has a moving piece (the lid), metal components and paint from prior to the 1970s which could be unsafe for young children and pets. Please purchase and use with caution and at your own risk.

Please carefully consider your comfort level with the wear prior to purchase. The wear issues have been considered in the asking price and refunds will not be given based on these issues since they have been described and shown clearly in the listing. Returns can be accepted within 10 business days of receipt. Buyer must contact us first for authorization and the return shipping and insurance must be paid by the buyer unless severe damage was incurred from us to you by the original shipping company.
