Wonderful early toy tin shows children at the seaside. They are playing with sailboats and digging in the sand. The entire design is done in shades of blue and white.
The pieces are child size, not doll size. The cup is 2-3/4 inches tall and the saucer is 4-1/2 inches across.
Overall condition is fair to good with wear to the design and small spots throughout. Please see photos.
Early tin probably dates from about 1870. Such early vintage toy tin is hard to find. The seaside pattern is very desirable.
