I’ve never heard of Tole painting before coming across this very unique Revere Ware coffee pot on eBay. According to Wikipedia:
Tole painting is the folk art of decorative painting on tin and wooden utensils, objects and furniture. Typical metal objects include utensils, coffee pots, and similar household items. Wooden objects include tables, chairs, and chests, including hope chests, toyboxes and jewelry boxes.
It’s certainly interesting and unique, but I don’t think my wife would want it displayed prominently in the house.
