Lot 0039
This is a very detailed model house with accurately carved construction details, a heavy wire fence, and yard. It is also a birdhouse. It includes a carved chair and sofa on the porch. All the downstairs windows have what seems to be pictures of windows taken from magazines. These are mounted behind thin clear plastic. The fence likely was cut from a larger piece of wire mesh. The gate swings open and closed. The base (yard) is pine and the rest is a combination of pine and crate wood. The overall condition is very good - especially for the age, likely about the 1940's, and the outdoor use. However there is some slight loss to the top of the chimney and a bit of the back right roof corner was split off years ago. The entire house, yard, and fence has been painted, with no sign of repaint or overpaint. There is some natural aging, crazing, and wear in the paint. The yard is 14 3/4" by 19 1/2"; the house 13 1/2" by 11" and 9 1/2" high to the ridge.

This lot has a reserve.
