For sale is this MARVEOUS vintage Tynietoy doll house map. This item came from the now closed Santa Monica dollhouse museum in California, and is old unused deadstock purchased by the directors of the museum sometime after the factory closed in 1952 and kept in storage ever since! This map is in overall excellent condition, with a few small issues due to the age (see photos). The colors are bright and beautiful! This is a very rare item! It measures 3.5 x 2.75" with dowels.
Provenance & History: Tynietoy was founded by two women in the early 1920s. Their dollhouse furniture and accessories were hand made and based on historically accurate details. 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. I have been lucky enough to purchase a large variety of this original factory stock and will be offering it for sale in the coming months.
