From the vintage 1940's or 1950's era, a children's complete 20 piece tin toy play dishes made by Ohio Art Company. Made as a souvenir for George Washington's home, Mount Vernon, and sold exclusively in the gift shop.
The color of the set is a pinkish-red color tones on cream. The back of tray, plates, inside of cups, creamer, sugar and teapot and lid, a solid pink. The 20 piece set includes 4 dinner plate, 4 cups with saucers, 4 dimi plates, sugar and creamer, tea pot and serving tray. Each group of plates and cups feature a different scene. Sugar bowl and teapot are the same theme as the cups. Creamer is a different scene. Mount Vernon is graphically display on the serving tray.
The condition of the set is above average but not mint. A piece of scotch tape is stuck to the top edge of the tray. A little bit of rub marks on the raised highlights of the bottom and rims of many of the items, but not all. The tray also has a tiny nick of the cream paint, just below the leaf border, at the top. When held in the direct light, looking across the surface of the tray, I noticed a few tiny dings. No loss to the color but a tiny imprint. This can only be seen looking from the side across the surface. In normal circumstances one would not notice at all. Still I want you to be aware.
A play set with historical significance and great to find in such good condition.
