HC&M: Holgate #12 Goldilocks and the Three Bears, with box


Collections Online->Antiques ->Toys ->Holgate

Name Holgate #12 Goldilocks and the Three Bears, with box










Description A large faux-log wooden cabin, containing a table, three stools, three bowls of porridge, and three beds, all different sizes, plus Goldilocks and three bears. Unlike in the 1934 (p.20) or 1935 (p.30) catalogs, these hand-painted figures are assembled from turned pieces, not sawn, so I believe this to be earlier.

The front of the cabin comes off, as does a section of the sloped roof. The sides have a window each, and the front has a door and a window, each of which has small holes near the top. Did it have curtains?

None of the wooden pieces appear to have any markings.

Blue box with illustration on top and "THE THREE BEARS", "HOLGATE BROS. CO., KANE, PA.", and "Designed by Jarvis Rockwell". Some old tape repairs, and an old price tag.

Possibly sold at the Nazareth Auction Center on 5/18/2013.

See Holgate #12 Storybook Cottage for later version.
