U.S. Metal Toy Mfg Co #56 Cottage Lollipop Holder

The last time Toys & Stuff looked at one of the U.S. Metal Toys terrific little buildings was shortly after the blog started back on Nov 2, 2010. At that time we featured the Church coin bank. These little tin-litho buildings were made as either coin banks or as lollipop holders like today's featured building. I've seen at least five different litho patterns, all of which use the same stampings (the only difference being the holes in the roof for either the bank or lolly holder) but I've only got four in my collection. Enjoy!
