Eye Candy Friday: Vintage Toys





My grandmother's dolls house furniture. She was born in 1917 so I'm guessing the toys were made in the 1920's. They have wonderful details, but were made with wooden tobacco boxes, which you can see in the picture of the table. My grandma told me she had little candles for the chandelier when she was a girl.

They are really fantastic! It's wonderful that these are still kept- it was funny- when I first looked at the pictures I thought they were real-size furniture and I was really wondering what kind of floor and wall you had surrounding them.. ;-)

How perfectly charming. I've always been in love with miniature things, wishing that I could be like Alice in Wonderland and shrink myself to fit into a doll house.

How lucky for you and your daughter to still have these cherished toys.
