Young Lad Jeep with Figural Soaps by Helen Pessi on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

I never imagined someone would make soldier figurine soaps.

“This is a wonderful vintage children’s set, designed for little boys by the Helene Pessl Company. It is an Army Jeep with three figural soap soldiers. This set is from the 1940’s or 1950’s, as best I have been able to determine. The Soldiers fit into the bottom of the Jeep, and the Jeep slips into the outer box. It is in decent condition, showing some wear on the Jeep parts that fold, and appears to be missing a couple cardboard details from the Jeep. The soaps have never been used… it is being sold ‘as is’. The entire package measures 7 inches (17.5 cm) long by 3 inches (8 cm) wide and 3-1/2 inches (9 cm) tall.”
