A charming set of children's wooden building blocks, dating to approximately the 1930s. These were cheaply made but are still very attractive. Two sides of each block bear a slightly raised, painted image, while two sides are decorated with a blue printed image, and the remaining two sides with a red printed image. The images include animals, birds, household items and buildings, but perhaps the most interesting are the methods of transport illustrated. These include a steam train, automobiles, a bi-plane, a racing car and even a Zeppelin. The designs of these are all redolent with 1930s charm. There are 24 bricks in all.
The blocks have some play-wear and some of the printed images are quite faded. Despite this this is a decorative set.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
