Amersham Toy farm yard featuring a metal gate, water pump, chicken house with chicken, feeding trough, cast metal bushes, metal cast woman farmer and a wooden house. The pieces are arranged on a painted wood base with green grass and a yellow path. The wooden house has painted vines and a red roof which lifts up to reveal the inside of the house.
The chicken coop, bushes, and chicken are all independent and can be arranged as you wish. The farmer, water pump and trough are stationary. The chicken coop has an opening door and the gate opening even has two posts with red orbs at the top. The farmer has a bucket of feed ready to feed the chicken. The cast metal pieces have great detail.
This vintage toy is in the scale of Britains and JoHill Co figures. The farm dates to the 1930s and is truly an amazing piece. There is a label at the gate entrance that reads, "Amersham Toys Made In England".
This vintage dollhouse is in good condition. There is some minimal paint loss as is to be expected of a piece of this age. The house has some markings on the front right side of the roof. The chicken pen is missing two of its legs and the pump handle appears to have been broken off. There is some light staining on the back of the house at the base and some of the green painted wood has chipped off at the back edge and some of the laminated wood is lifting on the bottom of the piece.
The farm base is measures 10" square. The house itself stands 6 1/4" tall 7 1/4" long and and 5" wide (measuring the roof).
This is a really amazing piece of toy history and sure to delight any dollhouse collector.
