Post subject:  Small Machines - Show Us What You've Got...

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.
