Furniture: The Lost Furniture Knockoffs
In this rare photo you can see the 'knock off' line of Arco brand furniture. Clearly, these were knockoffs since the style, color and inventory was nearly identical in every way, living room set not withstanding. There was a clear blue dining room table not shown here. I know because i had the dining room set as a kid, circa 1983. I cant believe Mattel didnt sue them (unless Mattel was a parent company or had some deal with Arco). This scale would just about fit the 3-D paper centerpiece posted below as they are approximately Marx scale. UPDATE: the two top photos i just found online and is a full 1:6 scale. extremely rare, each went for about $40 and are dated 1984.
