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.
