Vintage 1950s Poodle Laundry Hamper

Poodle Laundry Clothes Hamper on Do Wah Diddy

Flashback to 1950s Poodle Clothes Hamper spotted tis morning on Do Wah Diddy. Poodle collectors this one is for you.

 Do Wah Diddy description:

We get an occasional laundry hamper from the old days, but seldom one with such cool graphics as this example. It features a pink, gray and white poodle walking upright and carrying an umbrella. A flower cart and flowers add to the scene. The graphics are stenciled onto a textured vinyl with a swirl pattern which covers the front, sides and padded lid. The hamper is made of composition wood and metal with a wicker back. There are two handles made of clear plastic highlighted with gold glitter. The hamper stands 24-1/2 inches tall. It is 21-1/2 inches wide and 12 inches deep. It is in NEAR MINT condition with the paint, vinyl and frame all perfect. The only flaws we can point out are a couple of nicks on the wicker at the back corners (see detail photos). The nicks are minor and do not show from the front nor do they cause any problem with the function of the hamper. No markings or date, but research points to Harper Ransburg as the maker in 1955 and it seems to be a pretty rare piece. This will ship in a large box via Fedex Home Delivery for $52.95 including insurance (oversize rates apply). Here is the link to Do Wad Diddy
