Tynietoy Spinet Piano #198-01 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
Who can't use a great looking spinet piano in an early dollhouse. Made by Tynietoy c. 1925, this spinet has the nice hand painted decorations that Tynietoy is known for, a garland of colorful flowers above the paper keys, with additional hand painted decoration under the hinges, painted lines to resemble paneled protrusions on the two sides of the keys, and additional black line with gold diagonal lines going all the way around the front and two sides. Legs are beautifully thin and tapered. The keys protector opens and closes, and there is the foot pedal right in the center. Nice finish. This is a delicate piece and very hard to find not broken because of its delicacy. Very nice condition, showing just a tiny bit of wear, mostly on the paper keys--you really need to look for it to see it. There are no markings, but most likely had a Tynietoy paper label at one time. 5 1/2" long, 3 1/4" high, 2 1/4" deep. Prime example of Tynietoy artwork I discussed in the Artwork of Tynietoy articles I wrote for Antique Doll Collector a number of years ago.
