These are quite wonderful. How big are they?
2"x4"- but it'd be cool if they were console table size, and you could change colors to suit whatever's going on in your house. Perhaps a summer project!....
old, new. either way, awesome!
these are amazing what a great find!!
Are these going in the shop or are you just teasing us?
Probably not in the shop- at least not in this form....
these are amazing !!!
I think I may have found them - or something very similar at least :)http://www.learningmaterialswork.com/store/tinte.html
You're right Deborah! Wow- I had a feeling they weren't your average everyday blocks. Mine are in their other format:http://www.learningmaterialswork.com/store/colorframes.html (which looks like a better deal!)And what a cool company! Thanks for finding them!
A cool company indeed - I want everything. I would never have sold a set at a fleamarket. Lucky you!

Thanks for all your interest and comments on Colorframes, a toy I designed a number of years ago. I love the idea that some people thought the blocks were big enough to be furniture. Just to clarify, each Colorframe is 3 3/4" long by 1 3/4" wide by 1/2" thick - perhaps a great size for doll house furniture. I do think that the artists, Josef Albers and Donald Judd and, even the toy, Bill Ding may have had some influence on my design ideas.If you liked the Colorframes, you should check out Coloraturo, my latest design on www.learningmaterialswork.com
