This has no markings but almost certainly of German origin from the BLACK FOREST Region....I would think Circa 1900-1920. The piece is approximately 13" in length and 5" in height...the right hand pull knob is missing from the bottom slider.....pull the top slider and the man hits the stump with his mallet and of course the reverse happens when you push it forward. How much simpler and more pleasant were children's games back in the Victorian and Edwardian times!
