|The picture shows two sides of this Full Old Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme Drinking Straws Box. It has some nice graphics of the nursery rhymes:|
OLD MOTHER HUBBARD
THE OLD WOMAN WHO LIVED IN A SHOE
The box instructs boys and girls to cut out the figures and save the Whole Mother Goose Series. I do not know how many are in the series, this is the only one I have ever seen. I don't imagine too many of these ever survived especially still full of the straws. There is wording on all sides but it is not dated. It is believed to be from the 1940's. They were made by Maryland Paper Products Co. from Baltimore. All the paper straws are present, they were not counted but the box is full. The box measures 3-5/8" x 8-3/4" x 7/8" and it is in excellent to near mint condition. There is a slight tear of one flap that can be seen at the top of the scan.
