American Jazz has been in business since 1979 and is known primarily for high quality antique toys in the following areas:

  • American hand-painted tin and clockwork toys
  • European mechanical lithographed and hand-painted tin toys
  • vintage Steiff teddy bears and toys
  • paper toys and paper dolls
  • antique magic sets and objects
  • early optical and pre-cinema toys
  • lithographed and paper toys and games
  • cloth dolls
  • folk dolls
  • and vintage Disney toys
  • horn player

    Go to any display of antique toys and you will see joyful faces remembering and marveling at both the objects in front of them and the memories they engender. Additionally, the technical and cultural history of the world of antique toys broadens our sense of ourselves and our world.

    In addition, we actively seek American Folk Art and Jazz Ephemera and Memorabilia. What a friend once called, the "elusive oddments" sums up the many other objects that Alan Green has searched for the world over.

    It is the goal of American Jazz to provide a high quality display of genuine and accurately described objects for sale in all the areas above. Because we are always interested in buying as well, any offers will be responded to post haste. Everything sold by Alan Green is sold as described. They are guaranteed as described and returnable without question.
