We will be ushering in the New Year with an astonishing mix of antiques and collectibles from all eras, unlike anything that we’ve offered before. We’ve hand picked items from homes in Washington, Barnegat, Tuckerton, West Creek, Berkeley, & Manahawkin, NJ as well as Catasauqua, PA. The multi-estate auction will be held at the Eagleswood Fire Hall on Saturday, January 9 beginning with the auction Preview at 8 a.m.
This blog showcases some of the old Tin Litho toys that we’ve uncovered in a dusty old attic dating from the early 1920’s to the end of the 1950’s. The time span was the greatest period for “hands-on” toys. The era has long passed, but many of the toys are still around, and work as well as the day they were bought. This is the largest selection of toys that we’ve ever offered at auction.
What makes these toys so fascinating are the quality of the designs, as well as the fine finishing details. Playtime was time spent on pretending and using your imagination while having hands-on with these great toys.
A short list of the overall toy manufacturers includes, but not limited to: Arcade, Buddy L, Hubley, J. Chein, Fleet Line, Mar/Marx, Ideal, Tonka, Elenee, Structo and Remco.
Here’s a sampling of some awesome Tin Litho toys up for bid:
