Child's Tin Toy Wash Tub with a Silhouette of Girls Doing Laundry
This wash tub is made of tin. A magnet does stick to it. It is royal blue with black silhouettes of two girls doing laundry on each side. The inside is white. There is also the poem "This is the way we wash our clothes, wash our clothes, wash our clothes. This is the way we wash our clothes, on a bright and sunny morning." The tub has a 10" diameter at the top with a 7-1/2" diameter at the bottom. It is 4-7/8" tall. I has two strap handles that are hinged. There is no maker's mark.
This wash tub was used. There are overall scuffs and scratches. There are scratches on the bottom of the white inside. The base shows some rust spots but they do not go through.
