Recent Acquisitions

I came across these items at an estate sale for a few dollars each.

The chest of drawers is Sonia Messer from the 1940's-50's.  The magazine rack is walnut and has the gold Strombecker stamp on the underside.  The andirons are unmarked but look an awful lot like the ones that were sold with TynieToy.  The two platters are pewter. All of the pieces are 1" scale.

The platters are both marked on the bottom

The dresser is marked MADE IN COLUMBIA on the bottom.

    Those are wonderful. The chest of drawers is amazing and I love the pewter items...especially those andirons.
    Big hug

  2. I love the chest of drawers but I think the pewter platters are my favorite. So detailed!

  3. Hi, Troy - These are all beautiful pieces. I love the designs on the pewter platters - and the elegant shape of the andirons. I always admire your Sonia Messer pieces, and the chest of drawers is exceptional. Great choices!
