From our favorite American toy company, Chein and from our own personal collection, here is a basket that celebrates three different nursery rhymes: Little Bo Peep, Peter Peter, Pumpkin Eater, and Cat and a Fiddle. According to Alan Jaffe’s book, J. Chein and Company, this basket was made in the late 1950s. The handle can be raised or lowered.
Use it for fall decorations or even Easter. Chein is never out of style.
Size: 8 inches at the center of the handle when raised; 8 inches in diameter; basket height is about 3 ¼ inches
Condition: NOTE: The blue color of the inside of the basket is lighter, tending more to robin’s egg color. There are some scratches on the inside near the handle on both sides. There are wear scratches to the base. And a couple of scratches on the outside. It still has the original price stamp inside—29 cents.
