Old Folk Art Tin House with Door Ajar and Great Surface

Regular price $125.00

Yum. I purchased this house along with three more structures from a seller in Maryland, all of them clearly made by the same person long ago, together adding up to a tabletop farm (house, coop, barn and dog house!) Because each structure is its own excellent thing, and because a whole farm may be a bit much for one to accommodate, I am selling each piece individually. Each is quite a singular thing, all with wonderful lines and proportions, and made especially special I think by their surfaces, which look like energetic scribbled line drawings. This is the house, scratch made of tin, with a hinged front door that opens in (just a bit), slatted front windows made by cutting into the tin, and an especially gorgeous surface on the roof. Fabulous.

7 3/4" t x 5 1/4" w x 5" d and in good condition, earlyish 20th c. I believe. Sound and sturdy, with just a little bending to the corners of the roof, all to the good I think.
