Very nice decorative wooden toy cubes set model 856, 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. Toys by Ado are being highly collected at the moment, even more than ever cause this is very decorative combined with 1950s furniture from all countries! Very nice colorful cubes, with edged corners, all handmade and hand colored. This is a very nice quality set of cubes from the 1950s these are very hard to find. The set is in very good but played condition. 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! Marked with the ado plate on the small black cube which is often missing! A very good future investment.
