Ado Ko Verzuu Puzzel Box Model 259 Holland 1939

$1,474.02

About

Very rare puzzle tiles box model 259. designed by Ko Verzuu for Ado Holland in 1939. Ado means Arbeid door onvolwaardigen, translated; labor by incapacitated, which makes this an even more special piece. Toys by Ado are being highly collected at the moment, even more than ever cause this is very decorative combined with 1950s furniture from all countries! Jacobus Johannes Josephus (Ko) Verzuu, a former construction supervisor from Utrecht, led the ADO workshops. He had delved into architecture and art and developed a strong preference for the abstract lines and bright colors, which can also be found in the followers of De Stijl group from the 1920s, followed by Piet Mondriaan, Theo van Doesburg, Vilmos Huszár, Bart van de Leck, J.J.P Oud, Gerrit Rietveld and more. This group of architects and artists was active between 1917 and the early 1930s. They made abstract art, architecture and furniture in the primary colors red, blue and yellow. The dollhouse furniture by Verzuu is strongly inspired by the clean lines and the colors used by the architect Gerrit Rietveld. Very nice and super decorative puzzle tile box, handmade and hand painted in typical colors. This is a puzzle tiles box and has original paint in stunning unused condition. De Bijenkorf and Metz & Co sold a lot of Ado furniture in the 30s-50s. ADO Toys have a great charm because of their played look and original age wear but this one is very well kept. This box is in a fantastic original condition and would look highly decorative, you can make your own artwork with it. Would be an amazing addition to any interior or collection. Marked with the metal Ado tag at the front of the box.
