The Captain's Walk - A Modern Tynietoy Cottage

This Nantucket-style Cottage is modelled after the original Tynietoy 1920's Captain's house. This is one of 4 known models of the rare cottage made by Mel Davey who was a craftsman for the Tynietoy firm in Providence R.I. 

The front panel removes to reveal 4 spacious rooms with full staircase in an arched entrance hallway. A deep sloped roof and widow's walk complete the look of this vintage sea captains house. Signed by the artist (pen and incised mark) and dated (1987-1988)  on underside.  


Plans for this house were printed in
the November, 1920 issue of Ladies Home Journal



I have filled the house with Tynietoy furniture and carpets.

The kitchen has the hard-to-find Windsor chairs around the Tynietoy Hutch Table

At the back of the kitchen is the breakfast nook table and benches, a sewing table and an Arcade cast iron Alaska ice box. The Tynietoy kitchen dresser is on one side of the room. The rug is also from the Tynietoy company.

The palour has a lovely Ladder-back settee and matching chairs with a matching mirror over the built-in mantle. The Spanish style cabinet and table are rare Tynietoy treasures.

A closer look at the parlour

The larger bedroom has a spool bed and other Tynietoy furniture
including a secretary and chest of draws



The nursery has a yellow sleigh bed and blue crib.
