We are beginning to see a range of the blue and silver windows develop.

About the Dolly windows this style were the first style of windows and doors they made. They were generally yellow and silver ink designs printed on red tissue but I have one that is a magenta ink printed over purple tissue. This was the FIRST Dolly Toy co windows. A bit later they had the red and green designs printed on (at one time) thin white paper. These last ones were some of the prettiest windows ever in my opinion. Tom

Tom, Les, it would be cool to do repros of the Dolly Toy Co. windows. I would love to see those getting restored along side of the MIJ houses! I think I have one or two in my collection. Once, I get done with the fuzzy window project, maybe I can take a swing at those too. Paul has done an awesome job with the ones he's done, maybe he'll be able to crank out a few too.
