Manoil Toy People ~Treasures From Grandma's Attic

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I've done a Treasures From Grandms'a Attic post. Well, today's Attic Treasure is a fun group lead metal toy figures. Most of these were made by Manoil but I think one or two are by Barclay.

These were found in a large box carefully wrapped in tissue along with the other toys in the attic.

There are farm workers, brick layers, iron workers, and what look like shoe cobblers. Oh, and just one cow...I wish there were more animals, he's so cute!

Enjoy the photos! :-)

This collection is also part of the Vintage Love Market blog party over at Southern Lady's Vintage.

Hi Valerie!
I think most are from the early-mid 1940's.
They are fun, aren't they!
