Marx Farm Cabin

Here is one of the harder to find Marx cabins and was available at least as early as 1951.  My catalog references don't cover the period 1946-1950 so I can't say whether or not it was offered earlier than 1951. The cabin with this particular graphic, was a separate sale item - not available as part of a larger playset (however, the same stampings were used with other graphics and included in multiple playsets) . There would have been a set of brightly colored hard plastic furniture suitable for 54mm-60mm figures included (darn it - and I sold my sets of larger bright colored furniture last year!!!). The chimney is a mis-matched color and is most likely a replacement, however the rest of the tin is in real good shape. Enjoy!
