This William Howard Taft Celluloid Figural Toy is the first and only one I have ever seen. There is a metal appendage at the bottom and an internal metal wheel or tumbler, mounted on an axle. We assume this toy had some sort of action - perhaps traveling up & down a high wire or bobbing. A very rare find.
Size: 1 1/2" tall
Medium: celluloid figure in-the-round depicting Taft.
Excellent Antique Condition.
Provenance: From the Scott W. Dolson Collection
This is an extremely rare collectible, NOT a child's toy.
