EARLY ORIGINAL TIN TEA SET TRAY

KRAZY KAT

J. Chein and Co. USA 1940-50

This original tin litho toy tea set serving tray measures 5 1/2" x 4". Beautifully decorated with Krazy Kat with family and friends in the midst of a tea party. His friends include a cow and a pig, shown on the spectacular tin lithograph tray.

The ultimate comic strip characters, Krazy and Ignatz, debuted in 1913 as the family cat and mouse who lived in the home of the Dingbat Family in Kokonino Kounty (Arizona), created by George Herriman. The characters' antics are often praised for their mixture of surrealism, innocent playfulness and poetic language. Krazy and his friends have been recreated in toys by many manufacturers, but the tin litho tea sets made by J. Chein are among the most popular and everlasting. Chein had an exclusive contract with Woolworths for the sale of these tea sets -- the complete set sold for only 49 cents. They became and have remained a very popular toy and gift throughout America.

Condition is fairly good, with some edge and body bends but very little wear or scratching. The pictures describe it best. Offered as is. A fantastic addition to any collection of Disney or tin litho children's tea wares or precursors to Mickey Mouse and other cartoon characters. Price reflects condition and scarcity.
