Tin Litho Cat Crumb Tray


This is a very special piece, a duplicate out of my collection that I have cherished because of both the subject matter and holiday theme.

This wonderfully embellished tin art nouveau crumb tray depicts a family of cats going visiting, in the snow, bringing their hosts a basket and some holly.  The litho is based on a series of trade cards depicting the cat family going to visit, the young tom misbehaving and an early departure by the group. 

Over the years, I’ve managed to collect the entire series of trays.  Most were used as “giveaways” by merchants at Christmas as tokens of gratitude to their special customers.  This one reads “1914   Souvenir 1915,
First Anniversary, Klapproth’s, White Delicatessen Store, 5519 North Fifth St.”

Measuring 9 ½ by 6 ½ inches, it is in excellent condition.  In fact, most often when you find these, you rarely find the crumb “pusher”.  This set has been found in tact!

If you collect cats, tin litho or holiday…or all three…what a great find!
