Childs 1890 Tin Litho Tea Set Tray
PUNCH & JUDY
Made in USA c1890

This colorful tin litho tray was made as part of an early childrens tea set or advertising giveaway. The rectangular tray measures 6-1/4" long and 4 1/8" across, with a rolled edge. The tray features a scene from the storied Punch and Judy puppet show – Mr Punch and his wife playing Hangman with the Police Officer. Back in the day, the antics of Mr Punch were considered very entertaining, and children cheered him. Times have changed, but the colorful lithograph decoration is still brilliant and captivating.

The tray is marked "Made in USA" and dates to the late nineteenth century. The exact maker is unknown, although the superior graphics suggest it may have been made by the Ohio Art company in Bryan, Ohio, one of the most well known manufacturers of early tin toys.
The tray is in very good overall condition with very little surface wear and only superficial scratching to the litho color. The lower right hand corner shows the most pronounced wear. Remnants of the original silvering can be seen on the bottom of the tray. It is amazing it has survived in such condition especially considering it was played with by generations of children! Offered as is, still in great shape.

The tray would be a nice addition to any collection of tin children's tea sets and vintage Punch and Judy or circus clown police and advertising collectibles.
