MORE FABULOUS VINTAGE WEBSITES, FINDS, ETC. FROM EVERYTHING CROTON

Another beautiful French cabinet card, name unknown, we believe an actress or singer, pre-World War One, courtesy of collector Suzee Que. 

It's followed by one of our favorite Marx playsets: The Robin Hood Castle set, 1956, featured in a previous auction at Croton's own Serioustoyz.com; it sold for $197, proof positive that if you have serious stuff, SeriousToyz has serious bidders.

  1. Marx made the best playsets and this, along with their 'Military Academy', was one of them. Everything was cast with an eye towards detail and meant to last. In fact I still have most of this playset, passed down from a brother. I'm missing an archer or two and a top of one of the turrets.
