Antique/vintage 1927 Paper Mache Chick & Egg Candy Container Bakelite Eyes? For Sale
ANTIQUE/VINTAGE PAPER MACHE CHICK & EGG
This is an awesome item, not only is it in good vintage condition someone cared enough to put old style freezer tape on the bottom and date it. The old style freezer tape does not damage the item and comes off easily. The eyes look to maybe be bakelite. There were other items at this estate sale that were marked in the same way.
The pictures tell you what the condition this is, the only possible flaws are beginnings of a peel on the beak and a very slight indent on the edge that could be original, please look at the pictures, the limited coloring is good it is a light yellow orange which enhances the natural color of the tan paper mache.
The writing on the tape says”Pat’s from Okla City, about 1927”.
I bet a mother wrote that when she was going through the keepsake of her children. There is still a tiny bit of green paper grass in the bottom of the egg that probably was original.
The measurements are 6x5 3/4th inches.
These do not come around very often in this condition.
I have other vintage Easter items in my other listings and I combine shipping to save you money.
I always try to ship the most reasonable method I can within 24 hours unless it is on the weekend. If I estimate wrong on the postage I will refund extra if it is over 50 cents on domestic and 75 cents on international, however, I’m usually within 10 to 20 cents.
International buyer please wait for me to invoice you and also I do not have any control over customs and how long it takes sometimes to process through.
If you are dissatisfied with anything to do with the transaction please contact me as I strive to please and to make it a pleasant transaction for both of us. I will accept returns if I have made a mistake with my description.
