Fun ca 1950s Wooden Toy Box / Chest with Circus Decoration

Here is a wonderful vintage toy chest dating from the 1950s.

This is a darling piece with the cutest images. It is the perfect size to use or display - not too big and a great size for a child's room.

As you can see, the wooden chest is a great size and features whimsical circus scenes on the lid and sides.

The lid is decorated with a scene of zebras dancing to the direction of the circus' ring-leader while the front features an elephant parade.

Both sides show a clown trying to teach a dog to jump through a hoop.

All of the scenes are rendered in black and red and have a nice degree of detail and cartoonish charm.

You will notice that an array of silver-tone domes decorates the sides of the lid and front.

These give the trunk a great aesthetic element.

The lid opens on two hinges and features a locking arm on the interior right-side.

This helps keep the lid in place without slamming on tiny fingers.

You can tell that the toy chest was well-crafted due to heavy wood and excellent construction.

A small overhanging lip makes the lid particularly simple to open.

While the trunk shows a fair amount of wear, including some finish loss and several scratches, it remains in good vintage condition overall.

For collectors young and old, this charming toy chest will make a fun addition to your eclectic décor.

Measurements: Toy chest is 30 1/2" wide, 12 1/2" tall, and 14 1/2" deep Weight: 20 lbs.
