Old, Children’s Hosiery Box with Great Graphics

The lid of this vintage cardboard box is adorable with it’s very busy depiction of a nursery room filled with young children being attended to by two nursemaids. One child is gleeful as she reaches for a red ball while another holds a puppy and looks back a another child that is crying. A baby holds up a pair of socks and a little girl is taking a pair of stockings from a box while a few other toddlers appear to be watching her. The nursery has numerous toys about and is decorated with a lamp and curtains that have a blackbird design. Around the edge of the box are white birds that look like geese wearing bonnets. The box was for a dozen First Steps Infant Sanitary Hose and the end of the box shows the style and color.

The box is empty and measures about 5 ½” by 7 ½” by 2 ¾”. The front of the lid displays well but overall it is in only fair condition with worn edges and corners, creases and a few tears. The bottom edge of one side of the lid looks as though it’s been gnawed on by some small critter.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
