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

A wonderful new repro of a vintage Made in Japan "green spottie" putz house by artisan Lynn. The miniature Santa is celluloid and from the 1940's.

That's followed by a scene from the 1940's drama, Since You Went Away--although your editor has seen it a dozen times or more, it's always worth another look. If you haven't seen this fine film yet, make it a point to do so. The cast is amazing: Claudette Colbert, Jennifer Jones, a growing up Shirley Temple, Monty Wooley, Joseph Cotton, and more. Here's a YouTube tribute https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2lIMEmRqNw

And finally a great still from GIANT, featuring James Dean and Elizabeth Taylor. Click on the photos and enjoy!

And we've talked about this one before but it is always worth mentioning again -  The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore. This Charles Graham version is circa 1870, and the first representation of Santa Claus dressed in a red cloth coat trimmed with white fur. The type used in this edition is Ringlet. 

The artwork was devised with color overlays on a black outline.
