Recent Acquisitions

I went to an estate sale this week and came across a few interesting finds.

 There was a great vintage model of a cabin.  I didn't purchase this, but enjoyed looking at the craftsmanship and the materials that they used.

I did however purchase the red "Radio Flyer" wagon, the grandfather clock and the cast iron scale.  The wood clock and scale were recent Ebay finds.

The cast iron grandfather clock is from Kilgore and has a working pendulum.  It dates from the 1920's-1930's.  The wooden clock and scale are both Strombecker pieces. The wood clock is painted black and has the face painted on in gold, while the bathroom scale is painted blue and has the face pressed into it.  These date from the 1930's -1940's.  I am still doing some research on the cast iron scale.  
( Any help would be appreciated! )


  1. Dear Troy,
    I'm sorry but I can't help you with the cast iron scale. Maybe you should look for miniature grocery stores.Good luck with your research.
    Hugs Dorien
