Item details

Beautiful child's painting set from 1953. Unused, in original box. The set includes four "invisible color" paint books, that allow you to magically paint with water.

Includes original paint brush, and a yellow enamel bowl to hold the water.

The books each have a different theme, including animals, children of foreign lands, objects, and Mother Goose. Corresponding to each photo is a one-page description of the scene or story.

The box illustration is signed by Lucille Wallace, and features a boy and girl in 1950s clothing, enjoying painting. Made in USA, copyright 1953. Illustrations by George Carlson, and published by The Platt & Munk Co.

A fun vintage toy to give as a gift.

Condition: Excellent! The four paint books are in excellent condition, and none of the pictures have been painted. The box is in very good condition, with only slight wear, and a couple of areas where there has been a former price sticker or tape.

Each paint book measures 9 1/4" by 6".
