One of our absolute favorite putz churches from Howard Lamey---it's a big one--see it from start to finish at the link, including the inspirational Made in Japan "original"-- http://bit.ly/2ns5AyT
It's followed by a minty Topo Gigio featured in a previous auction at SeriousToyz. For those who don't know,Topo Gigio was the lead character of a children's puppet show on Italian and Spanish television in the early 1960s. His popularity spread to the world after being featured on The Ed Sullivan Show.
Topo is followed by a free offer from the 1913 Twentieth Century Farmer magazine--"A home for Dolly"-- a cardboard doll house "beautifully lithographed in 6 colors!" Wish we have seen the original.
And finally, a shot of some of Pete Oehmen's very early made in Japan vintage "coconut" putz houses. Again click on the photos and links.
