Here for your buying pleasure is an absolutely WONDERFUL Victorian Child's paint box, made in Germany. Circa 1890's. The lithograph paper top reads, "A Usefull Paint-Box for Children." And, yes, "useful" is spelled with two "l" on the top of the box!
This early child's paint box is in VERY GOOD ORIGINAL condition, retaining it's original chromo-lithograph art work to the top of the tongue and groove box top! The box top is marked "Made in Germany". The entire set appears to have been made of fruitwood, as the lid maintains the bow in the top of the box to close nicely and so the paint selections would not smear to the top of the lid. Inside the box are all of the original paper lining and slats of paint color with decorative formed moldings to the top of each paint selection. This set looks to have NEVER BEEN USED! Quite a nice early presentation of a child's play thing from the past!
It measures 10 inches in length and 5-1/2 inches in width.
Imagine one of your darling antique dolls holding this wonderful accessory piece in their hands!
