Has anyone heard of the G. Pierce Toy Company?


Recommended Posts

I just bought a dollhouse kit that was unmarked except for "Storybook Cottage" and a model number. Its not the Greenleaf house. Unsealing the box, it comes with paint, shingles, flowers and "grass" for the front yard, windows, etc. It seems to be of decent quality. The maker is listed on the book as G. Pierce out of Chicago, I would guess the manufacture date to be sometime in the 60s or 70s based on the images in the book. Anyone heard of this maker?

That sounds really unusual! Can you post some pictures?

EDIT: This old thread has a bit of info about G. Pierce:

 Sounds like your house pre-dates the Kozbro buyout.

Thanks! Yes I did some sleuthing and it was offered by Sears They had another design called the "Cape Cod" which occasionally comes up on Ebay. Can't find anything else about them though. 

 

Now I own a "Sears Kit House!" Hah. Too bad its too small to live in. I think I am gonna try to build this one as my first project. I love that its obscure.
