This clever old seal is a vintage celluloid wind-up toy from Japan. A celluloid ball is attached to a rod and when the motor is wound the ball spins on the seals noise while he vibrates and turns in a circle. His tail is made of felt and he has a small collar around his neck that resembles a grass skirt. It has the prewar sticker and is marked Made In Japan with a dragonfly-like logo.
He is in very good working condition with minimal wear and no damage. The felt seems a little stained where it is attached and possibly a little faded. It measures about 4 1/2" to the tip of his tail and 5 3/4" to the top of the red and yellow ball.
