A two story tin house by Marx. This house is interesting in that it appears to have been in a photograph with Louis Marx himself. There's a picture of Mr. Marx in a showroom, probably at the Marx plant, and hanging on the wall behind him is a dollhouse with a number tag on it. If you look at the picture of the house I have, you will see that the colors have faded and the house was originally a brighter blue color which shows between the upper story windows. When I received this house, there was a paper number tag taped to the metal between the windows and the number matched a number on a tag taped to the house in the picture with Mr. Marx. It looks to be the very same house.-- SOLD
