Georg Fischer Nuremberg, Germany ca 1910 lithographed tin penny toy horse-drawn carriage with top hatted driver uniformed in red and blue. Carriage has black and green body with dark yellow trim and red spoke wheels. Carriage doors marked 'GF' (reversed on one door) and horse marked 'Germany'. 4 1/2 inches long, 7/8 inch wide and 1 3/4 inches tall. A few small scrapes and scuffs consistent with age but in overall excellent condition with superb clean surfaces as shown.
This toy was in an extensive grouping of old Christmas ornaments, with other tin and wooden miniatures used for holiday display, not play. I'll be listing additional pieces from the group in the next few weeks, so be sure to subscribe to my shop to receive quick alerts when they appear.
Uncommon antiques for the investor and choice collectibles for the clever collector.
COLLECTION: A time machine on a shelf; a museum in the kitchen. Reach out to touch the memory of sweet childhood laughter.
