In the 1890s, Adolph Hostein, owner of the Syracuse Ornamental Company, developed a formula consisting of wood compound and casting fluids that could be poured into molds. The resulting casting appeared to be hand-carved.
The company manufactured a wide range of decorative accessories ranging from ashtrays to wall sconces. The Syracuse Ornamental Company became Syroco Inc. In the 1940s, Walt Disney licensed Multi-Products of Chicago to produce a set of comic figures from the movie Pinocchio. Multi-Products did them in Syroco wood. Collectors insert a second c,' Syrocco, to indicate a figure or object made by a company other than the parent company, Syroco Inc.
In addition to the Disney figures, Multi-Products did a series of 24 figures based on comic characters from the King Features Syndicate, which were distributed as premiums by Pillsbury. Also of great interest to collectors is the 1941 Great American Series of historic personalities. PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR OTHER LISTINGS FOR ADDITIONAL VINTAGE ITEMS! Diamond in the Rust at.
