Louis Marx Litho Wind-Up "George The Drummer Boy" Tin Toy

The Marx Toy Company was founded in 1919 in New York City by Louis Marx and his brother David. The company's motto was to "give the customer more toy for less money" and stressed that "quality is not negotiable". Original Marx toys of all types, whether made of metal or plastic are highly regarded and actively sought by collector all over the world.

This wonderful vintage tin wind-up, circa 1939, is called George The Drummer Boy; he is carrying a snare drum. This is the second version of the same named toy. When wound by with the key, he moves his arms up and down beating the drum he is carrying. This toy has the more modern ribbon wind-up mechanism rather than the earlier wire wind-up. The mechanism works fine. George stands 9" in height; the litho is in very good condition with some wear mainly on the top of the drum. The original box is no longer available. Great toy
