Here is a second Chinese Tom from the 20’s that was painted gold.
I was able to get back most of the picture on the skin from behind the paint.
Then painted the shell in usual red color.
I think it’s much better now.
Thanks rikkrebs, it actually came with a whole trap kit and I have another Chinese tom which they also painted with this strong gold paint so restoring that also.
It is a cool 1928-29 kit, I was hoping that the gold paint would come off easy and leave original paint behind but no such luck.
Don’t see these everyday. 20’s Chinese Tom Tom. I believe both Leedy and Ludwig might of offered these.
Unfortunately someone painted it gold, I tried to remove the gold paint but it would not sand or strip off very well.
I found some pictures and info and just decided to paint it as it would of...
Wow Just horrible, Everyone be safe. Family and friends first.
I went through this quite a few years back with a flood, makes your stomach turn.
One of the worst days of my life.
Sorry to hear about your friend.
My sister lives in Oregon. I live on the East Coast or I would offer a set for him...
