To the right, by special request, a 1950's, 1960's motion light for "D-Lux" Nuts; you lifted the "big top" and the bags of nuts were inside, warmed by the light. Love the graphics and shape of this--and apparently one of our local putz artisans among us is feeling some inspiration! Will keep you posted.
It's followed by one of our favorite made in Japan early putz houses, courtesy of Barbara, who attended the 2011 Golden Glow of Christmas convention; this one has all the bells and whistles--from the clay Santa Claus to the 'raffia' fence to the luffa trees; if you'd like to see more of her photos from the convention, click here.
And finally from a previous Auction at seriousToyz.com, there's lot of putz building and flattie inspiration with THE ROOSEVELT STOCK FARM Playset, 1914, Converse, Massachusetts, 19.5 x 11 x 18"; this is the largest set Converse made, sold via the Marshall Field catalog; extremely scarce and in nice shape. Again, click on the photos and links.
We just LOVE this Northwestern Products Early American Transportation set, especially the stagecoach
