Homepride Fred Children's Kitchen Weighing Scales Set. Made by Peter Pan Playthings / Spillers Ltd. Tom (the baker) stands at approximately 31cm in height.
This is the version where he has a solid hat (opposed to a sieve in his hat). Includes all 4 weights, and the measuring spoons. Doesn't include the actual flour! Would look fabulous on display in any kitchen!
Condition: A fine example of a weighing scales set. Listing this as a used item.
(not sure if it has been used or not). And in a vintage condition. However, he doesn't look bad at all. No significant discolouration - his white bits are still fairly white, black bits are still black. No touch ups, that I can see.The Fred weights are in good condition generally with no chips or cracks, however the 30g weight has what looks like a fingerprint stain on the side of his face but still has a nice white face. The 60g weight has a slightly yellowing face. Both the 15g weights have stains on their faces but still have white faces. Stains are not at the front, so they still look okay.
He comes in his original box - which is in excellent condition. A little tatty around the top where you open the box, with a few creases due to wear and tear over the years but that isn't unusual.
A small tear and a small stain at one bottom corner - can hardly be seen. An indentation, crease and stain on another side - again, not too bad, can hardly tell. The box has been strengthened inside. But not a lot of need, as its quite decent, and by no means falling apart.
Generally, a great, sturdy box, with no major creases or tears and no discolouration or fading. One of the better boxes I have ever seen. See all photos, as they provide part of the description.
