"Ragtime Rastus" manufactured by the National Toy Company, Boston, Massachusetts was advertised as the "Dancing doll for disc talking machines". This example is all original, complete, and in excellent condition. Besides the jointed wooden doll it requires several parts to work correctly and finding a complete all original examples with its original box is a rarity. It consists of 6 separate parts 1) the dancing figure, 2) metal wire rod, 3) metal/wood hub, 4) wooden pin which lays across the center of the hub, 5) wooden dancing platform, and 6) counter balance weight with metal rods. All of these parts are present. The two-piece cardboard box is included but after nearly 100 years it has had some tape repair to retain its shape. Illustrations of the toy in action as well as descriptions for its dancing abilities were applied to the cover.
