--To the right a wonderful but very battered find--a vintage tinplate dollhouse, circa 1960's by Wolverine--it will benefit from a thorough but careful cleaning soon and will probably join this year's Christmas display.

Thanks for reposting the Baitler Christmas photos. I can make out the herd of celluloid deer, the plaster Woolworth's nativity figures, and the white Plasticville picket fence and several other details that establish that they had been collecting things for the putz for quite a while.ReplyDelete
