Provenance & History: Tynie toys was founded by two women in the early 1920s and continued until about 1952. When the owners died in 1940 and 1947 some stock was sold until 1952 when Tynietoy closed its doors. The unsold items, in varying states of production from finished to unfinished were put away in storage. These were then sold at auction in the 1980s, and were purchased by the owners of a dollhouse museum in California where they remained in boxes until the owners passed and the pieces were put up for sale.
Many of the pieces I am selling are unpainted/stained, and those that are finished are as they were found. I HAVE NOT stained or painted any of the pieces, and they are exactly as they were when put in storage all of those years ago! I have many different pieces, most unpainted, but also many finished, so if you are looking for a specific item feel free to message me!
