Late 1800's, this most unusual box personalized for Mona, contains an upper tray with tiny tiles which would be used for designing a quilt pattern in the lower tray. I've never seen or heard of one AND the quilting museums were not familiar with such a unique item. Hard to believe it could be one of a kind! The 1mm. tile cubes have a raised design indicating fabric pattern...

I seldom come across these German miniature fences usually used for feather trees at Christmas or as toy fencing.However this one is large enough for the standard tree, as shown with the Swiss green glass tree stand, item #817942! How charming is that? It is very sturdy handmade with hinges so it folds up! One spindle is loose, and one missing. The green paint is original I believe. Not only for Christmas, but wonderful for display all year...

Not just for children, these blocks are even a challenge for adults! The German's are known for their excellent chromolithographs and these are wonderful depictions of Victorian children and their dogs and animals at play in various scenes. There are 4 different scenes included but I have finally figured out the 5th and am working on the final 6th scene(I told you it's a challenge...sooo much fun!) The wooden box is missing 1 end as shown in photos but all blocks are in tact...
