Barbie Modern Miniatures

Found these at a garage sale this morning. 
Barbie Modern Miniatures 
Durham Industries, Inc. 
Made in Hong Kong
Die-Cast Metal 
Blender with removable sections 
1940's Juke Box 
 There were 12 items in this series. 

1. Automatic Coffee Maker 
2. Blender 
3. Portable Stereo 
4. 1940's Juke Box 
5. Baby Grand Piano 
6. Trimline Phone 
7. Sewing Machine 
8. Guitar and Amplifier 
9. Bar-B-Que 
10. Fireplace 
11. Typewriter 
12, Vanity Mirror

The jukebox is starting to deteriorate.  The gold paint is starting to peel.on the bottom.
Most likely the problems were caused by being in a wet cellar. 
Durham also made these items as doll-house miniatures. (Without the gold paint) 
In the 70's these items were probably purchased at  Five and Dime Stores 
like Woolworths.
