Ado marked Ko Verzuu toy bag with cubes 1950
Height: 30 cm
Width: 18 cm
Depth: 18 cm
Very nice and decorative toy cubes bag, designed by Ko Verzuu for Ado Holland in the 1950s. Ado means Arbeid door onvolwaardigen, translated; labor by incapacitated, which makes this an even more special piece. Very nice sober 1950s bag, with green lacquered handles and brown lacquered wooden bottom with edged corners, all handmade and hand colored. There are original wooden Ado toy cubes inside the bag. This bag is in played condition but I think the patina makes this a very nice piece with aging to it. Would look highly decorative as this can be used in numerous positions everywhere!
