So much to show you today.
You've seen this very rare and early warehouse toy before--but it was worth pulling out again. Featured in a previous auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz, it has all the bells and whistles: great graphics, accessories and size. Made by Reed in 1895, Reed, 16" tall, litho paper over wood; working doors & pulley, has original accessories
with hooks for loading & unloading, complete! So remember, if you have serious stuff...check out serioustoyz.com today.
It's followed by a gorgeous 1946 Wurlitzer jukebox, courtesy of our friend Frank.
And finally the 2014 French tinsel tree putz village in the formal living room--featuring cathedral by Howard Lamey and the blue castle--a repro of one made in the 30's, only blue and gold instead, by Karl Fey, and handmade Marie Antoinette ornaments made from new and vintage ephemera and components. The little French couples are vintage made in Japan (one was a gift from a friend), and the die-cut is new, as is the enamel and rhinestone ship--which is a actually a pillbox.
