LEGO set 1222 (1955 /56- S)
SET 1222 (1x1 round bricks)- Sweden 1955

This is an old Swedish set (as seen from "lek" for "play" instead of the Danish "leg") that, from the box type, must date from 1955 or 1956. The illustration depicts one of the sides of the box. (to see the other side visit the page on set 1221). This box is smaller than the standard size - its dimensions are 75x55x18mm and they are shared only by sets 1221, 1230, 1240 and 1241.

The top of the interior drawer shows the contents and is in the 1955 design. The interior and bottom of the inner drawer of the box do not have any decoration. Both box tops are identical.

The contents are one white, one red and three 1X1 white round, all vs01. It is interesting to note that the box top illustrates three bricks and there were three colours in the box. The contents are obviously incomplete, because the total should be 30 bricks or more.
