This vintage toy is made by toy manufacturer Wuco in West Germany. Wuco was founded in 1906 and the name derived from Fritz Wunnerlein & Company. The toy was made in the 1950s during the cold war. The toy itself is of a tinplate clockwork Docker pushing crate - detailed tin-printing to docker and crate, clockwork operation. The side of the crate reads as follows: "WUCO 13 NEW YORK"
Measures 4" Long by 2" Wide and 4" Tall.
The overall condition is okay and the toy does manually wind up but is missing the turn key. The crate worker's arms swing freely. There is a slight dent in the crate. The pictures document the condition of the toy very well. Please feel free to ask any question you may have about this item.
