Tin Toys


This cabinet usually holds my antique Santa collection. After the holidays I decided to bring out my antique toy collection. They had been in boxes since I moved to this house 7 years ago. This is just part of my collection. My favorites, the trucks, and toy drummers are in other parts of my home. They are dated between the 1930's - 1940's. Click on photo to see them better.

It's great when you get things out after a long while-like a lot of presents from yourself. That's a great collection.

They are each a painting in themselves. Cool collection.
