Finally out of my building slump.
I got a house with an vintage ornament last summer.

I really wanted the ornament but the house was cool too.
It has coco on the roof and sand on the walls.

I had some left over pete's coco that I used for an other repro.

It's not a perfect repro but it seem to have turned out well.

The original has a hole on the base that looks like a figure would of gone there.
I'm hoping maybe one of the vintage house collectors may be able to tell me
what figure it was.

Hi Lucy,

Great job!!!

I also did a repro on this house. The figure is a little girl mostly all white, not holding a doll. I made my figure, I'll get a picture of mine for you.

Hey Steve - nice job! The base looks a bit like the finish of the Flat Iron Clock you posted a few months ago - nice!

I also like the balcony - is it just chipboard formed in a half-circle?

Thx

John
