Rare Set Of Seven Pinocchio Characters/figurines *syroco* Wood For Sale

Rare Set Of Seven Pinocchio Characters/figurines  *syroco* Wood

What an amazing set for the Pinocchio collector!! These figurines are from Syroco wood, a composite which gives them the look of hand carved wood. "Syrocco" or, more commonly, "Syroco," is the term applied to a molded material resembling carved wood that was invented and first implemented by a company called the "Syracuse Ornamental Company." Here is a concise explanation of the derivation of the term from a website offering a "Syrocco" product.: "This is an unmarked figurine of a Man Playing an Accordion which was made from the Syroco molding process that Adolph Hostein, owner of the Syracuse Ornamental Company, developed in the 1890s. The material is a combination of a wood compound and casting fluids that were then poured into molds. The finished casting appears to be hand carved. The Syracuse Ornamental Company became Syroco, Inc., in the 1930s. By the 1940?s, other companies such as Multi Products were producing Syrocco products. The Syracuse Ornamental Company produced many products for the home including ashtrays, decorative architectural moldings and very sought after cork screws." AND

The Syracuse Ornamental Company, known as Syroco, was an American manufacturing company based in Syracuse, New York. They were best known for their molded wood-pulp products that resembled hand-carving.

Founded in Syracuse, New York in 1890 by immigrant Adolph Holstein, the Syracuse Ornamental Company (Syroco) specialized in decorative wood carving, especially for the local residential market. Products included fireplace mantelpieces and other types of interior decoration popular in late Victorian homes. To meet increasing market demand and sales opportunities Holstein developed a material looked and felt like wood but that which could be shaped, allowing multiple pieces to be produced through a molding process. The new product, which combined wood pulp brought from the Adirondacks with flour as a binder and other materials to give it strength, was extruded and then cut to fit compression molds, which had were made from original carvings in real wood.
