From a Texas estate where only the best was purchased, this mid-century style play kitchen was purchased from FAO Schwarz in the 1950s for a lucky child. Made of wood with a robin’s egg blue high glass enamel paint finish on it, this cabinet still has a wonderful sheen on it. The red drawers with white pulls are made of plastic and all are in perfect condition. The original FAO Schwarz hang tag is still attached to the right side of the cabinet. The cabinet is a substantial size, measuring 30” wide, 18 ½” tall and 7 ¾” deep, and the child played with it extensively as evidenced by a little loss of the blue paint on a few edges. The back piece of the cabinet is Masonite. The plastic food and one pan were found in the drawers when we acquired it.
FAO Schwarz catered to an exclusive clientele and sold only the best, rarest, many times one-of-a-kind toys to their customers. This kitchen cabinet was made by Kibri, founded in 1895 by Misters Kindler and Briel of Germany, who first concentrated more on house and train miniatures.
