This Black Americana find, is a vintage Sambo Walking Pull Toy made by the A. Mecky Co. in Philadelphia, PA c. 1928. The figure and the cart are all wood while the wheels and hardware are metal. The original pull string is missing but when pulled the figure swings one foot at a time in a walking motion while pulling the cart behind him. This was a patented action as stated on the fully intact Mecky logo label attached to the rear of the cart. The cart is constructed with finger joints on all four corners and does have a partial crack in the bed. Everything appears to be complete, intact and original. There is paint wear and chipping and soiling all from normal use and age. I have not done any cleaning of the toy and it is in its "as found" condition. It measures approximately 15" long x 12" high x 8" wide.
