A reader sent me a bunch of photos of her putz. She wondered if I knew anything about the gray buildings in the following photos. I don't really, but I hoped someone online does.

She also has what look like German pre-putz candy boxes and at least two red-cellophane putz houses.

Please chime in. I'll send her the address to this page. There are a boatload of photos, more than I can post in one post, so you'll probably need to scroll down to see them all.

greetings to all...

i believe the water mill is part of a Czechoslovakian set...go to the July 2000 House of the Month on Papa Ted's site...and scroll down...
https://cardboardchristmas.com/papateds/Hom2000.html
you will see a big gray church pictured...in the reader copy there is a link to an eBay offering of a set that included the water mill...unfortunately the link seems to be broken...however...i did save the pictures which are below...

this leads me to speculate that the four dark gray houses are probably of similar origin since i see those "crumpled paper
boulder" type details on at least three of them...the very tall piece with no base could have had a similar base at one time...

howard...
