We are pleased to offer the collection of Karen Renae Tosterud (1947-2020) of Bellaire, Michigan. A Minnesotan by birth and Swedish by heritage, Karen was naturally drawn to Scandinavian antiques, particularly Dala horses, and this sale offers a remarkable range of examples of this traditional child’s toy. But Karen also collected a range of other children’s items and the sale is replete with German pull-toys, Teddy Bears, child’s furniture and folk art, all chosen with a keen eye.
