A crawling tortoise wind-up toy made in occupied Japan during the late 1940's post war. Measures 2" tall, 4 1/2" wide, and 5" in length. Made up of a celluloid shell with a tin bottom and mechanisms. Also comes with its own wind-up key. Mechanisms still work perfectly making the tortoise move its head in and out and its legs to crawl. Has its markings showing it was made in occupied Japan along with its pat. no. 277 with reg. no. 91206. Comes with its original box that has been warped a bit from age. No chips, cracks, or scratches on the toy. Perfect for any collector out there.
