This adorable box contains the original old baby grand piano and stool made by the Tootsietoy company. This is one of the items from the dollhouse furniture line that was produced in the 1920’s and into the 1930’s. The pieces are made of the white metal that Tootsietoy toys were made of. The miniature piano is painted green and the little stool has the same green on the legs but it has a darker green and cream crackle finish seat that gives the illusion of upholstery. The piano has a hinged lid with a brace to prop it open. Inside, the molded string details are painted gold. It has a hinged cover over the keyboard which is painted cream and black to give the illusion of the ebony and ivory keys. There is a removeable music rest above the keyboards. Both pieces are marked on the bottom with “Tootsietoy”. The piano measures about 3” wide by 3 1/16” front to back and 1 7/8” high with the top closed and the music stand removed. It is in very good condition with very minimal wear to the original paint. One of the little taps on the music stand has been broken off but it still rests in the bracket as you can see in the photos. The bench measures about 1 ½” by ¾” by 1” high and it too is in very good condition with very minimal wear to the original paint.
These furniture pieces come in the original box which has all of the cardboard inserts. The inside liner of the box looks like a living room or parlor with wallpaper, light fixtures, artwork and large picture windows with a view of the neighborhood. The box lid is brightly colored and it has a little girl playing a piano while a choir of three children sing the sang Little Boy Blue. The box measures about 6 ¾” by 5” by 2 5/16” high and it is in very nice condition with good color and gloss and minor edge and corner wear. The side of the box is also good with minor wear. The insert around the piano has been used as a notepad with math problem penciled on a few sides. The box does not have a number but this may be a number 2020 set. I believe this is from the early 1930’s.
