1950's Child's Washing Machine.
Battery Operated, Chad Valley 'Mary Lou' Working, Vintage Child's Toy in Box
A lovely example of 1950's kitsch, a metal child's washing machine Made In England.
This boxed battery operated item has a switch at the top to operate the wash and drying cycle.
The switch works perfectly for washing though intermittently for the spin dryer, but it does work, a remarkable achievement for a used machine over 60 years old.
There is some surface rust around the top but is in great condition; all parts move well and the main body is in good condition as shown in the photographs.
The box has some wear and tear from use on the top and the sides.
Boxed it measures 10.5" or 28cms in height and 8.75" or 21cms width.
An excellent Collectors item or a great retro nostalgic gift.
