Some finds!

A few more items I found this week!

This is a neat piece!  It's a salesman sample of a cast iron tub.  An exact replica of the actual bathtub, scaled down.  Pink enamel covers the cast iron.  It's called Contour by American Standard.

Salesmen could carry this right to the home or it could be left on a countertop in a showroom.

Here's just one of the original ads for the bathtub:

Found these three coin sleeves that I just bet went nicely into an Easter basket!

And, a type set that is probably a marriage of two different sets, but still a neat item.  The box alone is cool!

You always find such unique things.
That salesman sample bathtub is a good example. Love those little coin holders and that type set is so neat! Good outing!
