Rare 1930s Pit-a-Pat “Easywork Dresser”SOLD
Here is a real gem for the serious collector….the only one I have ever handled fully intact and original condition in the 26 years of trading!
If you are a collector and fan of the Pit-a-Pat dolls house furniture, then you will love this wonderful rare 1930s Pit-a-Pat wooden kitchen dresser, with opening upper doors and lower doors, plus a pull-down flap. In fact, it was listed as an “Easywork Dresser” in a 1930s Pit-a-Pat price list, however these type of kitchen cupboards were also known as “Maid Savers”. Each of the upper doors have a metal mesh vent, and inside you can see the original fixed “food cannisters” that are basically printed paper stuck to a wooden backing, so for illusion only. The mock cannisters are as follows: TEA, COFFEE, RICE, RAISINS & SAGO. The cupboard is in the original green painted finish, with white painted pull-down flap and work top. The back and base are in the pale green undercoat finish. Each door has the original metal handle, plus the flap has the original wide metal handle. On the back the original black and red square Pit-a-Pat label can be seen. Plus, JOAN’S is written in small letters on the back! Do you think young Joan was the original owner? There is also some coding written in pencil on the top left back corner, plus residue of possibly a shop label along the top back. Overall, this is in a good played with condition, there is some wear to the paintwork, but as this is 90 years old, I think any scuffing or paint loss could be forgiven. It measures 3 3/8” wide x 1 ¾” deep x 4 ½” high.
