A fabulous cover of actress and later, artist, Elke Sommer, from 1963; a quintessential 1960's look--the updo hair, the black eyeliner and lashes. You can read more about her here
She's followed by a fabulous 1950's Mattel offering featured in a previous auction @ Croton's own SeriousToyz.com - the “Shootin’ Shell Buckle Gun Western Belt Set” #632, 1958--a Remington Derringer
cap gun mounted on buckle, &
embossed leather belt!
The ‘no hands’ gun shoots a plastic bullet
automatically when you push out (with your stomach)--it sold for $303 at
It's followed by a special request--an oldie but goodie--Howard's "Mrs. Claus Cottage" based on Pete Oehmen's photos and blueprints. Posted here as well is the original vintage putz house as well.
