Rare Pennsylvania Dutch RENWAL Pieces.
In the 1950's RENWAL produced dollhouse pieces
specifically for Cross & Blackwell's product promotions.
The Pennsylvania Dutch Styled design was used.
With a label from their soup or canned date and
nut roll you could
purchase an item for 35 cents! WOW.
The February 1955 edition of Better Homes & Gardens
had the full advertisement from
Crosse & Blackwell.
See C. Donovan's book for that
ad and more information!
I have 4 different Pennsylvania Dutch items
for sale on eBay at the moment. 8/19/11
