Title: 1965T3105 Pear-Shaped Nesting Toy
Description: 1965T3105
Pear-Shaped Nesting Toy, 1895-1905
Sets of nesting toys were popular playthings in the late nineteenth century. Although they were often sold for a few pence, they took considerable skill to make. This set of six nesting pears was made in Hungary around 1900. They were turned from beech wood and would originally have been painted. Some sets contained a miniature 'prize' in the smallest pear.
