Complete Set of Mechanical Nut Cups, USA, Beistle, 1938.

 

This astonishingly rare and remarkably pristine set of mechanical nut cups, issued for merely one season in 1938, is comprised of four designs. Each design has been recycled and slightly modified from the art Beistle used in their 1930 -1931 roly-poly set. All have a mechanical action and are printed on thin flat orange paper stock. These are sizable, measuring 7” – 7.25” h x 5” w unfolded, 4.50” – 4.75” h x 3.25” l x 2.25” w, assembled, this set having never been assembled.
