One of the things I love about these old U.S. Embossing Co Color Cubes, is that each set has its own personality, based on when made and how much used over the years. While a small set at 16 blocks, I think this is my favorite set I've had, with the color on the old painted surfaces now feeling soft and almost ethereal, and also the solid blue ones appearing almost black. These are an early set, in a wooden bottomed box rather than a cardboard one (though the top half remains only as a piece of cardboard over top, with logo on face and and designs on reverse.
Box measures 5 1/8" square. Cubes are 1 1/8" cubed. A little paint loss around the edges, all to the good.
