This colorful and delightfully lithographed child's sand pail was found in an old upstate New York estate toy box. The beach or sand pail depicts children at a beach playing on a train ride called "Chu Chu Joy Ride." A dog watches as a young boy runs to catch up with the moving train. Another girl sells tickets to a boy at a ticket stand while a little boy peers around the corner behind her. The colors are in red, yellow, blue, green, black, orange, flesh tone, white. The pail with hinged handle is 5" tall but is just 3" tall (without the handle) and 2 1/2" in diameter at the base, 3 1/4" at the top. It has red interior paint. a metal sand shovel was found with the pail and measures 7 1/4" long and 1 7/8" wide. It is red on the front and blue on the back. The pail is stamped with the green logo of US Metal Toy Mfg. Co. Made in the USA. This toy is damaged. See pics. There are dents, dings, discolorations and surface rust- but it is a beautiful vintage piece with lovely colors and a great display item.
