Description



The last day for shipping to the US in time for Christmas is 14 December, according to the Royal Mail. Please consider this when buying for Christmas.Our mother, a lifelong collector and expert in childhood related antiques, has retired and is downsizing.

In this vintage shop we will be featuring her collections, including wooden and tinplate toys, European folk art, paper items, advertising, mid century textiles and more.

We’ve always been amused and fascinated by her interests, and hope you will be too. Have fun!

With art deco styling, this tin tea set features Japanese scenes, with typical graphics and colours of the 1920s. I’ve had unboxed pieces of this set in the past, with pieces marked ‘Made in Germany’. All toy production stopped in Germany during the war years, so these pieces would have been made very early after the war, using all the existing tooling and artwork from two decades earlier.

In excellent in excellent condition, the set has never been played with. It consists of:

* A tray: 9-1/2” x 6-1/2”

* 3 saucers: 2-3/4” diameter

* 3 cups: 2” wide x 3/4” high

* sugar/lemon plate 2” diameter

* teapot with cover” 2” high x 5” from spout to handle

The box, complete and intact, measures 11” x 9” x 3”. It still has its lacy paper decoration around the edge of the base, and comes complete with its original insert, which has no tears or other damage. The lid is split in three of the corners, and the attractive colourful label, which is complete, has some light staining. There is also some staining to the front of the box.

PLEASE LOOK AT THE PHOTOS CAREFULLY, AND FEEL FREE TO ASK IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. THE PICTURES ARE PART OF THE DESCRIPTION.

WE ARE HAPPY TO SEND FURTHER IMAGES, AS WE ARE LIMITED TO 5 PICTURES IN THE DESCRIPTIONS.
