Recent Acquisitions

I have not gotten a lot of miniature work done in the past month, but I have acquired a few items here and there.
From left to right - a few 1/2" scale Tootsie Toy miniatures painted gold, a 1:12" scale ceramic "Chippendale" style chair which is actually a container, a wooden corner chair, some 3/4" walnut Strombecker pieces including a piano, a dining table and an end table, a ceramic refrigerator and a small pewter cup.

The pewter cup is marked REVERE PEWTER on the bottom and after a little online research, I found it is called a Jefferson cup.  I figured it make a unique planter.

The chair is actually a decorative box

Here is a close-up of the Tootsietoy pieces.  These are all duplicates so I will most likely be listing them on Ebay along with the Strombecker items.

I found this Tynietoy chair at a local estate sale for $1.

It is marked with an ink stamp on the bottom.

I came across these 1:12" scale wooden pieces at another estate sale.

I also picked up this house.  It needs a few repairs, but it is in pretty great shape.

Here is a view inside
