It's not that I needed, wanted,
or have room for another house...
but as I perusing a local junk mall
a few weeks ago, I spotted this
early Rich Toys house for sale.
Despite three missing windows, I was
delighted to see that every other applied
exterior piece was still there.
When I turned it around to inspect the interior,
I was even more delighted to see
that it was crammed full of old furniture!
The majority was made by Strombecker,
and is from their "Modern" line
first introduced in 1938.
Also included are a number of
"Nancy Forbes" pieces from the 1940"s.
Most likely, the furniture is original
to the house since they are both
of the same vintage.
Besides the "duck" beds, these are
my favorites. The floor lamps in particular
are very hard to find, and can be quite expensive.
I'm working on re-creating the missing windows,
and will post more of this house soon.
