Check out this sweet vintage tin1960's Eldon's Mother Hen Target game! Back in the day this tin sign was sold along with a handful of small plastic eggs, a small egg basket and a dart gun. You'd load the eggs into a plastic chute attached to the backside of the sign and fire your darts at the plastic egg target on the front. When you were lucky enough to hit the target an egg would shoot out of the Hen's rump area through the plastic tube and land in the egg basket below. Cool huh? While we don't have any of the accessories (eggs, basket, gun) that originally came with the game, we think this would be a great display piece in your home.

The sign's front is made of tin which appears to be wrapped around a thick piece of cardboard. On the back, which is cardboard, there is a plastic chute attached for loading the plastic eggs. The plastic egg target on the front still depresses when pushed, but we're not entirely sure if the game is actually still functional or not. As such, this item is being sold as is.

Text on the tin sign is as follows: "Eldon's Mother Hen Target. Hit Target And Egg Will Drop In The Basket."

Measurements : 16.75” Tall x 13.75” Wide.

Item Condition: Wonderful vintage condition! As you can see in the pictures, this sign has been beaten up a bit by the hands of time, which is exactly why we love it so darn much! The tin has begun to lightly rust in some areas, primarily along the top edge. The cardboard backing appears to have been exposed to water at one point in time and has some liquid stains. The sign has quite a few bends, scratches, and areas of scuffing which adds to its wonderful rustic look. Finally, if you're not into the "dirty look" the sign could use a good cleaning before displaying. Please refer to the pictures for further details.

Shipping - Sometimes it can be a bit tricky accurately determining shipping costs, especially when shipping internationally. In the event we find that we overcharged you once the item has been shipped we will immediately refund all shipping overage charges in excess of $2.
