Product Description

VINTAGE DOLLY TOY CO. CARDBOARD PAPER CHRISTMAS VILLAGE HOUSE
WONDERFUL, VERY UNUSUAL VINTAGE CARDBOARD, PAPER MICA GLITTER COVERED DOLLY TOY COMPANY CHRISTMAS VILLAGE PUTZ HOUSE. Perfect for your your Christmas Village, Nativity, Putz or Model Railroad, under the tree. The Dolly Toy Co. opened in the late 1920's, in Dayton Ohio, began production on Christmas Village houses late 1930's, this lovely line of buildings being offered in the Montgomery Ward Christmas Wish Book in 1942. Beautiful detailing and coloration. Very heavy cardboard stock. Unusual detail and design. Metal corner clips hold colorful fence and base construction together. This was one of their trademark details. Heavy mica snow glitter covers the roof of the house, for a beautiful, wintry snow effect. The village putz house is in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. Paper litho door and windows are there and intact. It has the original hole in the back to insert a small to medium size light, which is what we have done, to show the lovely glow of Christmases past thru the windows and door. The large size house measures about 6 1/2" wide, 4" deep, and 4 1/2" tall. No ink stamp on the bottom, but would have been made in U.S.A. Unfortunately, the Dolly Toy Company closed its doors in December, 2008.....they will be missed.

What a great addition for your CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY collection!!!!
