1950s Mint Green & Cream MFZ Kitchen

Details of each item

Sink, Refrigerator and Stove:An amazingly-complete, tinplate, four piece kitchen set in near-perfect condition, with plastic used solely for some handles, the backsplash and the tap. All four pieces were made by the West German company, MFZ or Martin Fuchs Zindorf, during the post-war period. (You can see this company’s logo on the front of the frig.) Each piece has opening doors, and features delightful period details too, from its rounded edges to the illustrated chicken, apparently cooking “inside” the oven.

All doors slide open to reveal capacious kitchen storage, while the frig door opens from left to right. Inside the frig you will find two fish, a moulded jelly, two milk bottles, one red drink bottle, broccoli and potatoes. On top sits a beautifully detailed strawberry plant. The plastic sink will hold water if you like and comes with a cloth and bucket, while the stove comes with a large, red-handled pot and two, lidded copper pans. Above the sink is a metal clock which has been mounted on a painted wooden board. The dresser or hutch holds a lot of creamware china: there are four dinner plates, four flowered, octagonal plates, four side plates and four bowls plus a flowered dish which is holding apples. There’s also two fluted cake tins on top and a wonderful, antique green tea tin.

Note: It is very unusual to find all four of these mid-century pieces, and when we did, we noticed that some of the original cream paintwork was slightly the worse for wear. Thus some surfaces have been repainted.

Kitchen Table: Another fabulous mid-century, all metal piece, this one Japanese. The table top features a very intricate floral design surrounded by a faux wood pattern. The table is set for lunch with white placemats, carrot soup, bread and a hand-painted, wooden tea set, plus wooden chopping board and rolling pin.

Chairs: The two, curved-top, mid century chairs were made by Halls Lifetime Toys, based in Tennessee. We really love their shaped top and tapered legs – they have been painted mint green to go with the rest of this special little kitchen.

Stool: This is a hand-carved piece which has been painted in the same creamy white as the metal appliances.

Walls: Covered in retro-pattterned wrapping paper, which has been mounted on two pieces of 5mm thick, A3 foam board. Each piece of foam board measures 42 x 29.5cm or 11 5/8 x 16 3/8 in. We’ve made a little clock (non- working) to go with this kitchen, and it is included in the price.
