TOY-FEST at AUCTION part 2 — Oh Those Little Toy Guns!

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.

The last blog showcased 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.

Today we will showcase some of the other outstanding, vintage toys on the auction block like the “…little toy guns…no sting no hurt no one…just a bang, bang rolling off your tongue…” (Carrie Underwood, Little Toy Guns).  Playtime was time spent on pretending and using your imagination while having hands-on with these great toys. I’ll bet many of you played cowboys and Indians with those little toy cap guns!  How many of you can recall the Lone Ranger with Tonto, Roy Rogers with Trigger, Dale Evans with Buttermilk, and Bullet too, as well as Hopalong Cassidy!  Well they will all be at the Fire Hall waiting to go home with their new owners! Once home you can play like nobody is watching! Oh, if the toys could talk!

Scrapbooks offered are full of Cutouts, Advertising Cards, Die Cuts, Postcards, Trade Cards, Greeting Cards and more from that era.  It’s amazing how well preserved these items are after sitting in an attic for one-hundred years! We will be offering a nice selection of Union Cases and other Tintypes too.  A tintype, also known as a melainotype or ferrotype, is a photograph made by creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal.  The image is then coated with a dark lacquer and used as the support for the photographic emulsion. Tintypes were used during the 1860s through 1870s.

Decorative daguerreotype cases are referred to as Union cases. Often the cases have more value than the pictures they held. A Union case was small a square or rectangular and the top and bottom were designed to fit together.  When opened they revealed a small tintype.  The case could easily be carried in a pocket for a love one to take with them.  They were made with shellac and sawdust and then compressed.  Engravers cut thousands of detailed designs onto steel plates for use on the cases.  Union cases were also referred to as ‘sweetheart cases’ and were used up ’til the 1860’s due to the popularity of the cabinet cards.

Plus we’re offering a nice selection of Fulper and Stangl pottery, and a Boehm figurine too!

Decades after William Fulper founded Fulper Pottery, he appointed Martin Stangl vice president of the company in 1924.  Also at that time the company expanded by constructing “Plant No. 2” a few blocks from the original Fulper Factory.  Plant No. 2  produced Fulper Pottery’s newly developed Fulper Fayence art and dinnerware lines. The Fulper Fayence dinnerware was America’s first open stock solid-color dinnerware. This line ultimately became Stangl Pottery, and for many years was advertised as “Stangl Pottery, made by Fulper Pottery.” Throughout the 1920s Fulper Pottery Artware continued to be produced at the original factory, however by 1926, demand for the Stangl Pottery products had increased to the point that a third production facility was acquired in Trenton, New Jersey! After 1935, the company continued to be Fulper Pottery, but produced only Stangl Pottery brand dinnerware.

Pictured here is a Silk Embroidery on Taffeta done with the skillful hands of  Anne Dandridge Aylett (Alexander), ca 1700’s.  Ms. Aylett was the second cousin to our country’s First Lady, Martha Washington (on the Custis side of the family)!  Yes, Martha Washington (Dandridge) who was also known as: “Lady Washington,” “Martha (Dandridge) Custis Washington,” and “Martha Custis.”  Makes you wonder if Martha and Anne were in the same room during its creation and had any discussions regarding this one of a kind work of art!  This is Americana at its best!  You’ll never see another one!

Anne-Aylett Anderson and Martha Washington information can be found on ‘Geni.’

To add to the spirit of our Americana mix, we will be selling a hand made doll house from the late 1800’s, in it’s original paint and interior wallpaper.  1800's Dollhouse
