Vintage Cardboard 2-Story House #2

Here's our second in the latest series of vintage paper/cardboard buildings. yesterday I said there were six buildings in the series plus a brick wall. My mistake, there are actually SEVEN buildings in the set I have. I guess when I was taking all the photos one inadvertently got left behind. The house measures 2 5/8" (6.7cm) W x 4" (10.2cm) D x 3 3/8" (8.6cm) H.

If anyone knows who actually made these please let me know. The seller attributed them to Built-Rite (aka Warren Paper Products) but I'm not convinced - yet.  Many Thanx!

Enjoy!

  2. Thanks for posting, Ed. As a sometimes retro-graphics designer, I get all kinds of dangerous ideas when I look at these. This one is interesting in that the attention to detail is so precise, but the shingles on the roof run the wrong way.

    1. Hi Paul! The shingles on the roof are wrong!! LOL How 'bout that I never noticed. I'll have a post showing one of the buildings with a not-very-well-designed roof. I think these buildings were probably bottom-of-the-line offerings from whatever company who made them.
