Brian's recent post about his Yale Bluebird machine got me inspired to start this thread. Let's post pics of some of the unusual, strange or ordinary small machines in your collections. I love these small machines and am always looking for them...

Sorry if that's a stupid question, but what is a black nickel finish? Is it nickel plated and then painted black or is there some kind of nickel plating that produces a black finish :?:

Nice machines by the way. :)

Here's my Bing Pigmyphone, made in Nuremberg, Germany. That's what the kids who had to have everything played with around 1930 :lol:

Good initiative for this new post Curt A, also like the small machines, especially the toy, your Brunswick is very interesting, I have a Pigmyphone Bing identical to his friend Andreas, the Belgian Roaring20s Hummingbird is very small and interssante, have some toys, and the favorite of my collection is this Play-ola photo.
