For auction is this MARVEOUS vintage Tynietoy hinges. These were made by/for Tynietoy somewhere between the 1920s-mid 1940s. These are not cheap Chinese made hinges, but authentic vintage hand made brass hinges, in accurate historic detail. These hinges came from the estate of the now closed Angel's Attic Santa Monica doll Museum in California. The owners of the museum acquired the unsold stock from the Tynietoy company some time after it closed its doors in 1952, and these have been in storage ever since!
These would be perfect for repair of Tynietoy furniture, or for artists wishing to have a higher quality hardware than is available anywhere on the internet! These are for 1/12 scale furniture. These also have a nice natural patina from bring in storage for 90+ years! These are in very good vintage condition and measure .4" x .25" . You get a total of six hinges- Nails are not included. I also have larger hinges (.5" x .5" )available.
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!
Be sure to see the other TYNIE TOYS furniture I have for auction this week! Just look under the category"Dolls & Dollhouse Accessories" in my store., or simply put in Tynietoys into the search box.
