Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter's Tea Party 1950s Page London tin lithograph vintage paint box - VERY LARGE high-quality 1950s enameled paint box with an extraordinary brilliantly-colored lithograph. Characters pictured include the March Hare, the White Rabbit, the Mock Turtle, the Griffin and the Cheshire Cat. In windows are images of boy and girl artists holding their sketched work. All in all, the graphics on this piece are exceptional, and in generally excellent shape!

Manufactured by Page London, a British maker of quality paint boxes with fine lithograph colors. The Page London logo is impressed in the red enamel on the back. No lithographer is identified. “Made in England” is printed at the base of the front cover and on the center of the paint tray insert inside.

This box is top of the line - exceptionally large - 20” x 9” x 3/8" – with white enamel metal insert containing slots for 84 water-color paints - virtually every color of the rainbow - and a tray for brushes. The original light card board insert (for holding the paints and brushes in place) is missing, a few of the original square paint pads are missing from their slots, and no brushes are included.

CONDITION NOTE: PLEASE LOOK AT THE PHOTOS CAREFULLY. This paint box is VINTAGE and HEAVILY USED INSIDE – but with wonderful lithographic images in excellent condition on the outside – a truly wonder display piece as is! Although almost all of the original water-color paints are long gone, they could easily be replaced, either on-line, at any quality brick-and-mortar art supply shop, if you want to restore it to its original working condition. It is a vintage piece, so there are the inevitable indentations and dents in the cover (slightly raised through the middle just from use and age) , light stains, and occasional small scratch – almost none of which involve important parts of the image. The tin does close slightly unevenly due to the mis-shaping of the lid that has occurred over the years.
