The Tin Decorating Company (Tindeco) of Baltimore, Maryland, operated from approximately 1914 to 1935. It was the largest tin decorating plant in the world. Sold to Owens-Illinois Glass Company in 1935.
This wonderful and rare lithographed tin plate, circa 1930, by Tindeco features H. Cady’s illustration of “Peter Rabbit’s Radio Party” and is one of the nicest of all the Peter Rabbit scenes produced on tin-wares. The center shows a group of rabbits and their friends enjoying a picnic while music plays from a radio in the background. The rim is decorated with various characters including Prickly Porky, Bobby Coon, Jerry Muskrat, Reddy Fox, Buster Bear, Mr & Mrs Owl, Caleb Cottontail, Danny Meadow Mouse, Grandfather Frog, Tommy Turtle, Waldo Wren and Happy Jack, all identified by name on the border of the plate. The plate measures 7 3/4" across with rolled edge with sharp, colorful animation. There are no dents or rust; a few minor scratches detectable when plate is held a various angles and paint nicks along the edge. Great piece
